Equal opportunity policy

CONFLICT RESPONSE INSTITUTE is a provider in training, healthcare management and consultancy: established in 2010 to provide consultancy and evidence-based conflict management education and training to the National and independent health industry, protective and security services, educational establishments, international partners and any allied organisations that might have to deal with violent / non-violent conflict situations as part of their daily job undertaking. We operate from Sutton Surrey and have the capability to take our training services to the door step of the purchaser.

We ensure that we are aware of and comply with legislations including the Equal Opportunities Pay Act 1970, the Race Relations Act 1976 and amended in 2000, the Disability Discrimination Act 1995: and the Sex Discrimination Act 1975.

We aim to encourage value and manage diversity in all areas of our business and to be an equal opportunities employer.  We are committed to providing equality for all and to this end we make real efforts to attain a workforce that is representative of the local community by ensuring that we use as wide a selection of advertising medium as possible and by monitoring the ethnicity and gender of our job applicants.

Every student reserves the right to expect and receive the best theoretical and technological teaching and learning exposure under excellent conditions: and conducive to their individual needs, in order to be provided with the maximum opportunities to achieve success. Towards this end we are committed to incorporating a range of teaching styles and learning and assessment opportunities in our training strategies in order to accommodate participant’s diverse learning needs. A pre-course training needs analysis will also be conducted in order to ensure and accommodate individual and organisational needs. A list of pre-course information will be provided to each prospective student to ensure adequate mental, physical fitness and theoretical preparations prior to attending.

We pride ourselves on conducting a disciplined classroom. We do not accept discrimination on the grounds of gender, marital status, or gender re-assignment, nor will we tolerate discrimination on the grounds of race, ethnic origin, skin colour, nationality, religion, or belief, age or disability.

Additionally, we will not tolerate conducts of victimisation, intimidation, bullying, threats or harassment in any form and we make it quite clear that every reported incident will be taken very seriously, investigated and if deemed a disciplinary offence, could result in dismissal.

We believe that everyone should be treated fairly and on their own merit and ability. This policy is the ethos of our selection, recruitment, teaching and assessment procedures and also applies to promotion, training and to discipline and dismissal. We provide training to our managers in interviewing, selection, promotion and recruitment ensuring that they understand the legislation and the policy.

We work with our clients and suppliers to ensure that they understand out ethos and we make it clear that fair treatment for all is expected and maintained.

This policy will be on the company notice board, web site and is also available in the staff handbook. All new employees are asked to read this policy during induction.

The managing director is responsible for this policy and its implementation, review and for the investigation of any instances of discrimination.
