Equality and Diversity Policy Statement
HFE confirms its commitment to being an equal opportunity organisation in which all individuals are treated on the basis of their relevant merits and abilities and are given equal opportunity within the services we provide.
It is the Company’s policy as an equal opportunity organisation treat all people equally, irrespective of their age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership and pregnancy and maternity.
As an organisation we celebrate diversity and champion equality in everything that we do. This policy statement attests our commitment to this matter and our full Equality and Diversity Policy sets out how we ensure that we do not unlawfully or unfairly discriminate against people in all areas of our business, including but not limited to employment, teaching, learning, assessment and internal quality assurance.
To ensure that this policy is operating effectively (and for no other purpose) HFE maintains records of all employees, potential employees and learners’ ethnic origins, gender, age, disabilities and learning difficulties.
Ongoing monitoring and regular analysis of such records provide the basis for appropriate action to eliminate unlawful direct and indirect discrimination and to promote equality.
The Company’s procedures are fully compliant with the letter and the spirit of the Equality Act (2010) and we are firmly committed to preventing unlawful discrimination.
