Equality and Diversity Statement

Access 

Enrolment on Evolve Fitness Education Ltd courses will be free from prejudice and bias.

If Evolve Fitness Education Ltd feels it is not able to support a prospective learner safely and effectively through any of our courses, we will consult with YMCA Awards to ensure all possible special considerations have been considered before making any decision about the learner’s participation on the course.

It may be necessary to advise learners that provision would be best provided through another training provider if Evolve Fitness Education Ltd and YMCA Awards cannot accommodate any special considerations or learning needs.
