Policy statement.

At The Adult Learning Centre, we promote the Fundamental British Values. We respect and welcome everyone. At our company, we adhere to the Equality and Diversity act set out by NCFE. Please see the policy scope and aims below.

Scope of the policy

This policy is aimed at our customers, including learners, who are using NCFE products and services, and applies the principles of diversity and equality.

 The purpose of this policy is to set out our commitment to ensuring we adhere to legislation and regulation requirements. We fully support the principle of equal opportunities and oppose all unlawful or unfair discrimination on the grounds of ability, age, colour, culture, disability, domestic circumstances, employment status, gender, marital/civil partnership status, nationality, political orientation, racial origin, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, social background or any other grounds or status.

What products and services are covered by this policy?

This policy covers the delivery of both NCFE qualifications which are subject to scrutiny and enforcement by our qualifications regulators (regulated qualifications) and unregulated products which are owned and/or accredited by NCFE. All NCFE products include those which may be offered and/or delivered under an NCFE-owned brand name (for example ‘CACHE’).

Who needs to know about the policy?

 You must make your learners and your staff (including centre, satellite, sub-contract centres or contractual staff) who are involved in the design, delivery, management, assessment and quality assurance of our products aware of, and familiar with, the contents of the policy.

 How can we obtain copies of the policy?
