A Market Weighton man has spoken of his delight after his company was appointed by the United Arab Emirates government to deliver safeguarding training to schools in Dubai.

Staff Training Company offers a range of training services aimed at working against the abuse of children and adults in the education, workplace and retail environments. It has developed a bespoke package of services aimed at the education sector which caught the attention of officials in the gulf coast city.

Managing Director, Andy Gibb, from Market Weighton, said: “Although safeguarding is more mainstream news now, there’s still so much more education to be done.

“We’re delighted to be working with the UAE government who are taking a proactive and responsible approach to safeguarding. We can’t wait to get started.”

“The potential for exploitation and abuse of children and vulnerable adults continually increases. It’s quite alarming, and we’re doing what we can to educate as many people as possible”.
