Equality and Diversity Policy

JW DJ Academy is dedicated to encouraging a supportive and inclusive culture amongst the whole workforce. It is within our best interest to promote diversity and eliminate discrimination in the workplace.

Our aim is to ensure that all employees and self-employees and job applicants are given equal opportunity and that our organisation is representative of all sections of society. Each employee and self-employee will be respected and valued and able to give their best as a result.

This policy reinforces our commitment to providing equality and fairness to all in our employment and not provide less favourable facilities or treatment on the grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, ethnic origin, colour, nationality, national origin, religion or belief, or sex and sexual orientation. We are opposed to all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination.

All employees no matter whether they are self-employed , part- time or full-time, will be treated fairly and with respect. When selecting candidates for employment, promotion, training, or any other benefit, it will be on the basis of their aptitude and ability. All employees will be given help and encouragement to develop their full potential and utilise their unique talents. Therefore, the skills and resources of our organisation will be fully utilised, and we will maximise the efficiency of our whole workforce.

JW DJ Academy is committed to the following:

  • To create an environment in which individual differences and the contributions of all team members are recognised and valued.
  • To create a working environment that promotes dignity and respect for every employee
  • To not tolerate any form of intimidation, bullying, or harassment, and to discipline those that breach this policy.
  • To make training, development, and progression opportunities available to all staff.
  • To promote equality in the workplace, which JW DJ Academy believes is good management practice and makes sound business sense.

To encourage anyone who feels they have been subject to discrimination to raise their concerns so we can apply corrective measures.

To encourage employees to treat everyone with dignity and respect.

To regularly review all our employment practices and procedures so that fairness is maintained at all times.

JW DJ Academy will inform all employees that an equality and diversity policy is in operation and that they are obligated
to comply with its requirements and promote fairness in the workplace. The policy will also be drawn to our students and any suppliers.

Our equality and diversity policy are fully supported by management and will be monitored and reviewed annually to ensure that equality and diversity is continually promoted in the workplace. We will make sure that all of our tutors complete the equality and diversity training certificate in their induction program.
