Equality and Diversity Policy
What Equality and Diversity means is that everyone, staff, clients and trainees, should be treated fairly and with respect so they can develop to fulfil their full potential. At the British Racing School we value diversity and we celebrate difference.
Whilst Government guidance on Work Based Learning will apply some restrictions, it is the British Racing School's aim that we will strive to deliver equality of opportunity for all trainees and staff, irrespective of their age, race, gender, religion or belief, sexual orientation, physical or learning abilities Similarly, there should be no discrimination on any other grounds including disability or age except where it is necessary to ensure that the job is done effectively and safely.
Furthermore it is the School's aim to encourage an inclusive environment for both trainees and staff and to use teaching methods which promote equality of opportunity. The principle of Equality and Diversity will apply to recruitment, selection, training, promotion, dismissal, development and terms and conditions of service.
We will not unlawfully discriminate within the meaning and scope of the provisions of the Race Relations Act 1976, Sex Discrimination Act 1975, Disability Discrimination Act 1995, the Employment Equality (Religion or Belief) Regulations 2003, the employment Equality (Sexual Orientation) Regulations 2003 or the Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006. We also aim to observe the codes of practice published by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHCR).
All employees and trainees have a responsibility to apply these principles in practice. Any trainees or member of staff who feels that they have been treated unfairly in relation to this policy should use the School's Grievance Procedures.
