Our aims – policies and procedures
- We work to eliminate all forms of negative discrimination, recognising that this requires not only a commitment to remove discrimination but also action through positive policies to redress inequalities wherever possible and applicable. The human givens approach is a holistic, all-encompassing one which takes into account individual needs as well as our shared humanity; this approach is reflected in the work of the College.
- We adhere to the principles underpinning legislation, such as the Equalities Act (2010) and the Human Rights Act (1998) when designing and implementing policies
- We will regularly evaluate our policy and procedures and the impact of these on individuals or groups based on age, gender, ethnicity, disability, religion, race, belief or sexual orientation.
Health and Safety
We value the high standards of the venues we use for our attended training and always choose them carefully based on their ability to safely and professionally provide a suitable space for our courses to be held in.
Details of our current venues can be found here – should anyone have any concerns or questions about a specific venue, we advise them to contact them direct to check, for example, on particular access questions or whether they are able to accommodate other specific needs. We are also happy do this on a student’s behalf, if requested. To date, we have always found our venues very helpful and flexible in accommodating our students.
We take feedback from our delegates very seriously and always encourage it so that we can improve our services wherever applicable or necessary.
If you experience a problem with any service provided by Human Givens Services Ltd t/a Human Givens College, you should raise the matter directly by email to [email protected] in the first instance, giving sufficient information and clearly outline your grounds for complaint. We will work to resolve the matter to the satisfaction of the complainant (as long as it is within our ability) within 10 working days.
If you feel the nature of the complaint is too serious to be dealt with informally, or where a satisfactory conclusion has not been reached in the initial informal complaints procedure, please put your complaint in writing and post to The CEO, Human Givens Services Ltd, The Barn, Church Farm, Church Farm Lane, Chalvington, Hailsham, East Sussex BN27 3TD. We will acknowledge the receipt of the complaint and ensure the matter is looked into thoroughly. A considered response will be completed within 30 working days.
In handling complaints, there is the possibility that the process will have an impact on individuals, and that there could be differential outcomes as a result of the differences between individuals. All complaints are given due consideration and will be treated fairly throughout.
