Equality & Diversity Statement

Introduction

 

Reach4Skills are fully committed to the active promotion of equality and diversity in the provision of all our services. As a Training Provider we value the diversity of our staff, learners and all business associates and are committed to providing a fair, equitable and mutually supportive learning and working environment. We particularly expect all our staff, leaners and business associates to value, respect and promote the rights, responsibilities and dignity of each individual they work with.

We also promote the equality of educational opportunity based on merit, irrespective of background, beliefs and socio-economic context.

 

Commitment to Equality and Diversity

 

We believe that excellence will be achieved through recognising the value of every individual. We aim to create an environment that respects the diversity of staff and students, enabling them to achieve their full potential, contribute fully and derive maximum benefit and enjoyment throughout their training. We acknowledge the following basic rights for all:

  • to be treated with respect and dignity
  • to be treated fairly with regard to all procedures, assessments and choices
  • to be encouraged to reach one’s full potential

These rights carry responsibilities and we require all of our employees, learners and business associates to recognise these rights and act in accordance with them. In addition, we will comply with all relevant legislation and good practice.

No individual will be unjustly discriminated against. This includes, but is not limited to:

Discrimination because of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion and belief, sex and sexual orientation.
