Scam Awareness

Protect yourselves from Scams

At BAEC, we take the safeguarding of our learners very seriously.

We aim to bring information about the latest scam to your attention.

On this page, we post the latest information from the Metropolitan Police, the London Borough of Bromley and other partners.

We also host regular awareness campaigns in our centres - look out for the next workshop dates.
