Middlesbrough College has teamed up with the Halo Project to educate staff and students in ways to spot honour-based violence and help victims of forced marriage.
The College says it doesn't have a specific problem. But it acknowledges its students are from a diverse range of communities.
Its Principal Zoe Lewis says that enabling staff and students to know how to deal with the problem means they can help those in trouble at an early stage.
