Equality & Diversity

The Training Trust is committed to achieving equality of opportunity for all staff and learners and will strive to provide an environment that is free from discrimination, harassment and victimisation. All employees, learners and associated clients will be treated with respect and dignity, and the needs of minority and disadvantaged groups will be responded to with sensitivity, empathy and support.

Set targets are monitored and recorded, inequalities in practice and procedure are addressed and eliminated so all who are associated with us are treated fairly and every learner is given the opportunity to achieve their full potential.

The Training Trust will fulfil its statutory duties in regards to all current and developing regulations. In accordance with the Equality Act 2010, it will also endeavour to actively promote the development of a society in which:

  • People’s ability to achieve their potential is not limited by prejudice or discrimination
  • There is respect for and protection of each individual’s human rights
  • There is respect for the dignity and worth of each individual
  • Each individual has an equal opportunity to participate in society, and
  • There is mutual respect between groups based on an understanding and valuing of diversity and on shared respect for human rights
