How does REIWA ensure fair and equitable access to training?
Australian federal and state legislation makes it unlawful for organisations to discriminate against people because of their age, gender, race, marital status, sexuality, or physical or intellectual disability.
The following legislation underpins all matters related to access and equity at REIWA Training:
- Equal Opportunity Act 1984
- Disability Services Act 1983
- Occupational Safety and Health Act
- 1984 Disability Discrimination Act 1992
REIWA Training will ensure:
- All participants have equitable access to the benefits of training and assessment irrespective of their gender, age, race, religion, culture, linguistic background, marital status, geographic location, socio-economic background, disability, sexual orientation, family responsibility or political conviction;
- Enrolments into training courses and programs will be conducted at all times in an ethical and responsible manner, ensuring fairness and compliance with Equal Opportunity legislation; and
- All participants/students have equitable access to training resources, facilities, support services, information, trainers and assessors, materials, assessment opportunities, learning opportunities, special needs materials, and equipment.
