Equal Opportunities

Equal Opportunities Statement

We are committed to the principle of equal opportunity.

Accordingly, our policies for the recruitment, selection, education and assessment of students and the recruitment, selection, training, appraisal, development and promotion of staff are designed to ensure that no student, job applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of race, creed or religious belief, nationality, ethnic or national origin, disability, trade union membership, gender, sexual orientation or marital status and educational background.

The objective of this policy is to ensure that individuals are selected, promoted and otherwise treated solely on the basis of the relevant aptitudes, skills and abilities. This policy confirms our commitment to promoting and implementing opportunity in learning. We aim in all our learning programmes to offer an inclusive learning environment that encourages a diverse student population.

Management has the primary responsibility for the successful implementation of the policy by:

  1. Not discriminating against fellow employees, job applicants or students
  2. Not inducing or attempting to induce others to practice unlawful discrimination
  3. Bringing to the attention of employees that they will be subject to disciplinary action for failure to adhere to the policy.

 

Individual employees have the responsibility to ensure that they assist the Company in achieving these objectives by:

  1. Not discriminating in the course of employment against fellow employees,
    students, suppliers or members of the public with whom they come into contact during the course of their duties
  2. Not inducing or attempting to induce others to practice unlawful discrimination
  3. Reporting any disciplinary action to the Senior Management Team.

 

The successful operation of this policy necessitates a contribution from each employee and all employees have an obligation to report any act of discrimination known to them. Employees who consider that they are victim of unlawful discrimination may raise the issue through the Grievance Procedure.

Students on any course who consider that they are a victim of unlawful
discrimination prior to enrolment or at any stage in their studies may raise the issue via Joanne McManus, Education Services Director, at the usual ICS address.
