      In short, the principles are designed to remove all barriers to participation in training and to promote an atmosphere of tolerance and inclusion.  The central principle is to eradicate any decisions or actions that are taken by any party towards another person based on that person’s age, race, colour, religion, gender, language background, disability or sexual orientation.


      The policy also outlines what action will be taken in response to any such decision or action.
