Child Protection

Child Protection

STEAM Education is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

Aligned with the recommendations of the International Task Force on Child Protection, we hold ourselves to a high standard of effective recruiting practices with specific attention to child protection.

Swedish law ensures that children are well protected and their rights are defended.

There are also various organizations dedicated to the wellbeing of young people.

 

STEAM policy

All employees are required to undertake a security clearance.

This takes the form of a criminal records report and a special excerpt from Swedish criminal records for those working with children.

Included in the recruitment process will be a local and national police check as well as a mandatory police background check from the last year of employment in every country worked.

It is STEAM policy to actively seek confidential references for all new employees.

All our STEAM International schools have a code of conduct, a child protection policy, and procedures which support this commitment.
