Equality and Diversity Policy
This is to ensure that we treat everyone equally, and enable all learners to have the opportunity to succeed, by eliminating discrimination and supporting those with additional needs.
We also follow a Safeguarding Policy which defines our obligations to vulnerable adults.

Before enrolling, you should read the learning agreement included in the Learner Handbook. By completing and submitting the enrolment form, you are giving your agreement to the terms and conditions included in this document.
If you opt to enrol you are also accepting that RALSS may not be able to provide the services or programmes outlined in promotional materials in a range of circumstances, including: low class numbers, staff sickness, industrial action, severe weather conditions or any circumstances which may affect the Health and Safety of staff or learners. However, we will make every effort to complete your course.
If you are unable to attend a session, please notify us by email or phone. Don’t forget to tell us your name, course, venue and how long you are likely to be absent.
If we don’t hear from you, we will call to check that everything is OK, or to offer support if you have ongoing problems that are preventing you from attending your course. We can offer help in the form of financial support towards childcare and transport or, in some cases, fees if you are taking an AEB coded course, and are claiming benefits or on a low income.

Comments and Complaints
In order to continually improve our service, we are happy to have your views, whether your comments are positive or negative. We will always take these seriously, and investigate thoroughly any issues that are brought to our attention.
If you would like to read our Policy statement, please click on the link to Comments and Complaints. If you would like to make a complaint or comment, please contact us, or use the form and send it to us at our Oakham Enterprise Park address, marked for the attention of the Information, Advice and Guidance Officer (IAGO).
ICT Code of Conduct
If you use computers in your classes you will also be asked to sign the ICT Code of Conduct. Our network is run by Peterborough Regional College, so it is particularly important that no-one downloads inappropriate content, or alters the system in any way. There are some safeguards in place, and misconduct can be identified by the login used, and the time. If this is identified, the learner will be removed from their course without refund.
If you would like to read this agreement before attending, it is on page 3 of the Learner Handbook.
