Equality and Diversity
The Equality Act 2010 offers individuals protection against discrimination, harassment or victimisation in employment, setting out an expectation that everyone must be treated with dignity and respect.
In line with this Act, Training Link strongly believes that education should be accessible to all, regardless of race, age, sex or sexual orientation, gender reassignment, disability, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, religion or belief.
It is on this basis that we endeavour to deliver equal opportunities for all who embark on their educational journey with us.
Training Link celebrates and values how different we all are. This is strongly linked to promoting human rights and freedoms, based on principles such as dignity and respect.
At Training Link we recognise, value and embrace people’s different backgrounds, knowledge, skills, and experiences.
Diversity is something that applies to everyone and should be part of everything we do. It is an important part of our work and it requires everyone to play a full part. It is important to recognise that none of us fit neatly into separate ‘packages’ which can be neatly labelled or discriminated against.
We are committed to ensuring that:
- All assessments are standardised, ensuring that all students receive the same impartial treatment.
- All qualifications and training material are devoid of any discriminatory references.
- All training is available to all without restriction, and is achievable by all, provided the required standards are met.
- If any specific adjustment is requested, all reasonable attempts are made to cater for such request.
- Students with certain protected characteristics (age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion and belief, sex and sexual orientation) are not disproportionately disadvantaged by any question, assessment or training package
