Promoting equality, diversity and inclusion
Our values (Act with Integrity, Grow Knowledge, Empower & Support, Create Opportunity, Drive Results Together) have shaped our ambition: to create an equal opportunity for a successful career for every learner, every candidate, & every employee.
We acknowledge that inequality, discrimination, prejudice and bias exist in our society, and that no individual or organisation - including Kaplan - is without biases. We are committed to ensuring that our leaders, managers and employees contribute to the prevention of discrimination and actively embrace the principles of equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) by embedding them in our interactions with our learners, candidates, colleagues and partners.
Through data and analysis, and by listening to our colleagues and customers, we will seek to identify where any significant inequalities may exist within our organisation (particularly where they relate to broad inequalities that exist in our society) and we will implement strategies to address them.
Our student code of conduct sets out how we create a study environment for our learners and staff that is safe and where everyone is treated with dignity and respect.
During our induction process, all new learners are introduced to our fundamental British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. Our apprentices are encouraged to build upon their understanding of these values through discussions with their Talent Coaches.
