Mercury Training Services Ltd believes that diversity and equality are an essential part of its values and enriches studying and learning experiences.
The Equality Act 2010 covers nine protected characteristics, making it unlawful to discriminate on the grounds of:
- Disability (those who have, or have had, a disability)
- Gender Reassignment (no longer required to be under medical supervision)
- Marriage and Civil Partnership
- Pregnancy and Maternity
- Religion or Belief (including lack of belief)
- Sexual Orientation
We are committed to supporting students to work and study in an environment that is free from unlawful discrimination and promotes equality of opportunity and good relations between people of different racial groups.
We are working towards a culture that welcomes equality of opportunity and values diversity. Some changes are swift to happen; others may take time to evolve. I have experience of and commitment to equal opportunities, and I can assure you that they are one of my priorities.
We deplore all forms of personal harassment and seek to ensure that the working environment is sympathetic to all our students and employees. We recognise that we have a duty to implement this policy and all employees are expected to comply with it.
We all have an individual responsibility and I urge you to help Mercury Training Services Ltd put our action plan into full effect.
