Herts for Learning is committed to building a diverse and inclusive workforce, where everyone’s voice is equal. 

    Our purpose is to ensure that every young person, through access to a great education, should be able to realise their potential, regardless of where they live or their circumstances. Their education should be free from barriers presented by a lack of equality, diversity, and inclusion. 

    We strongly believe that education is key in creating meaningful change and we know that we have a significant role to play’ 

    Embedding equality, diversity and inclusion is everyone’s responsibility.  Our executive team, our board of directors and all our colleagues are passionate about building a culture where everyone feels equally included and valued, so that diversity will follow. 

    We recognise the negative impact of under-representation and lack of diversity in our organisation, our education system and in all aspects of our society. Therefore, for recruitment into any HfL post, where we have two or more candidates of equal merit, candidates with protected characteristics will be given a priority over candidates without such characteristics. This is the ‘tie-breaker’ scenario referred to as ‘positive action’ in the Equality Act 2010. 


    How we are meeting our commitment to becoming an anti-racist organisation.
