Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

Equality is the quality or state of being equal; of knowing and understanding that everybody’s value is the same and, by extension, treating them equally.

Heart of England Training is an equal opportunities employer.  Our policy aims to ensure that no job applicant, employee or learner receives less favourable terms on the grounds of: Age, Disability, Gender Reassignment, Marriage/Civil Partnership, Pregnancy and Maternity, Race, Religion or Belief, Sex or Sexual Orientation.



Prevent is part of the UK's counter terrorism strategy which seeks to indentify and support those at risk of becoming drawn into radicalisation or terrorism.  If you have any concerns please contact our leads or call the police on 999. Police forces nationwide are appealing for internet users to report harmful extremist and terrorist material when they see it online. To anonymously report extremist online material click the red button below.

British Values

Heart of England Training advocates, promotes and teaches the core British values because the Government believes that doing so will make people more resilient towards attempts to radicalise them and support them with life in modern Britain.


These essential values support individuals to become rounded and valuable members of our society.
