Safeguarding Helplines

First Intuition aims to provide a supportive environment and equality of opportunity for students facing difficulties and those who may have experienced problems or concerns.

First Intuition has a duty to take steps to protect its students and apprentices, and will do so professionally using specially trained staff both inside and outside college.

If you are experiencing any issues then we recommend that you contact our Safeguarding Team whose details can be found here.

Sometimes however you may find it easier to speak to an outside organisation that may be better equipped to handle your circumstances.
