MBM Training & Development Center makes a positive contribution to a strong and safe community and recognizes the right of every individual to stay safe. In this, we are guided by international agreements, such as the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, legal protection afforded children and young people by the state, and by the professional demands of best practice.
The principal pieces of UK legislation governing this policy are:
We strive to ensure that all children and young people have the same protection regardless of age, disability, gender, racial heritage, religious belief, sexual orientation or identity.
Our policy commits to anti-discriminatory practice and recognises the additional needs of children from minority ethnic groups and disabled children and the barriers they may face, especially around communication.
MBM TDC comes into contact with children and vulnerable adults through the following regulated* activities:
- non-formal education and training activities;
- coaching and mentoring;
- community outreach.
MBM TDC believes that our employees, and all those over whom we have any authority and influence, must demonstrate behaviour that is not simply consistent with protocols and legislation, but also with an appropriate set of personal and professional standards.
Child protection is both a corporate and an individual responsibility. At MBM Training & Development Center we are committed to best practice in recruitment, to ensuring staff understanding of and commitment to child protection principles, and to advising our partners of our policies in this regard. MBM TDC`s Child Protection Policy outlines the safeguarding strategies that our staff and collaborators need to follow in order to ensure they act appropriately and confidently to protect the children we work with.
MBM TDC`s Child Protection Policy seeks to identify and create a safer organisational culture in order to protect children and young people.
The best protection for children is prevention, and MBM TDC is committed to protecting children.
* Regulated activity can be defined as ‘frequent contact’ with a vulnerable person (once a month or more) or as ‘intensive contact’ (3 days or more within a 30 day period)
MBM TDC`s Behaviour Code of Conduct enables staff, volunteers, interns and consultants to comply with our Child Protection Policy. By setting standards for appropriate behaviour it also protects people who come into contact with children from
unfounded accusations of improper conduct.
The Code clarifies those unacceptable forms of behaviour which will result in a formal enquiry and which could lead to disciplinary measures being taken or criminal proceedings being instituted.
Additionally, the Code of Conduct gives guidance on the expected standards of behaviour of adults towards children, and also of children towards other children.

People need maintenance and upgrades even more than machines do.
Retraining is maintenance.
Training is an upgrade.
Development is the next generation model.
