Equal opportunities policy
The British School of Naples believes that equal opportunities are important in order to:
- Encourage the development of individuals’ abilities, talents and potential to the full
- Attract potential students from the widest possible pool of talent.
- Meet its moral and legal obligations.
- Provide a working environment free from unlawful discrimination, harassment or victimisation.
Courses provided by The British School of Naples are based on the principle of open and equal opportunities for all, irrespective of gender, marital status, sexual orientation, creed, colour, race, ethnic origin, age or disability.
The School takes measures, including staff development and training to combat inequality, discrimination or prejudice based on any of the personal characteristics mentioned above, and to eliminate barriers which may prevent people joining as employees or as students. The principle is promoted in all aspects of course provision including:
- Statements of eligibility for entry on all courses that are based solely on academically relevant criteria.
- The methods of recruitment, selection and training of all those working for or on behalf of The British School of Naples.
- Review procedures to ensure that all aspects of the provision of courses are, and remain, non-discriminatory.
Students or employees who feel they have been discriminated against or unfairly treated in any way should raise the matter with the Director and/or the course tutors. Initially the student and Director/Tutors should aim to resolve the matter informally. It may be that discriminatory action is unwitting and easily resolved once the problem is clear.
If students or employees are dissatisfied with the outcome, or the complaint is very serious, the student/employee should raise the matter, in writing to both the Director of the school and, if the matter remains unresolved, with Cambridge ESOL. Contact details for Cambridge ESOL are recorded in the CELTA 5 (blue book).
