Our Corporate Social Responsibility policy outlines our commitments to:
We are committed to: behaving with honesty and integrity in all our activities and relationships with others; ensuring internal controls and standards are met, and exemplary business behaviour at all times.
We offer a safe, inclusive environment, upholding Safeguarding and Prevent duties. We proactively ensure quality standards mare met on all courses. And we conduct all business in a legal and socially responsible manner in all practices including, but not limited to, upholding standards as an Equal Opportunities employer, compliance with the Bribery Act 2010 and Modern Slavery Act 2015.
We provide a fulfilling and rewarding career in a safe and welcoming working environment for all our employees. We ensure equality of opportunity for Employees, Supply Chain Partners, and Participants with physical, mental, or learning disabilities.
We work with Suppliers and subcontractors to achieve our sustainable and socially responsible procurement aspirations. All Suppliers and Subcontractors must adhere to the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and Bribery Act 2010.
We are committed to reducing the environmental impact of our business by reducing waste, considering the environment in procurement practices, encouraging greener transport and reducing travel.
Each year we contribute to local charities, youth groups, sports groups and community centres.
We have achieved the highest grade of ‘Strong’ from the ESF Team at the DWP for our commitment to managing and monitoring of the cross-cutting themes of Equality of Opportunity and Sustainable Development.
I'm a firm believer in giving something back to your employees. Too often, companies simply take, take, take and ultimately miss out on the opportunity to fully engage their staff and inspire them to take more of an active interest in the business. Enabling them to gain a nationally recognised qualification not only improves morale but also helps them to focus their minds on key aspects of their job, which, in my experience, can significantly improve their performance.
