The partners in the AEL programme are committed to promoting equality, diversity and an inclusive and supportive environment for students and staff involved in the programme.
In particular, the AEL will:
- Seek to ensure that students and staff are treated equitably regardless of their gender, race or ethnicity, age, disability, socio-economic background, religion or belief (including non-religion), marriage or civil partnership, family responsibilities, pregnancy and maternity, sexual orientation, gender reassignment or other inappropriate distinction;
- Promote an inclusive and supportive study environment, which affirms the rights of individuals to be treated with respect and fairly and affords opportunities to fulfil their potential;
- Ensure that in the conduct of its activities procedures are introduced and implemented which minimise the occurrence of inappropriate discrimination, whether direct or indirect.
