At CBD Training students will encounter these principles throughout everyday life. The curriculum is mapped across the whole Centre. Listed below are some examples of how we promote these values in our organisation.

This policy is designed to ensure consistent, effective and fair treatment for all. Information, advice & guidance provided is impartial and confidential to enable learners and potential learners to make informed choices as to the most appropriate route for their personal and career development.
CBD Training are committed to safeguarding of our learners, particularly those that may be termed as `vulnerable’*.
We take safeguarding seriously to protect our learners from potential harm, to enable them to contribute to a safe learning environment in which learners are supported and can focus on achieving their potential.
Prevent is part of a Government initiative to develop a robust counter terrorism programme – CONTEST. The UK faces a range of terrorist threats. All the terrorist groups who pose a threat to us seek to radicalise and recruit people to their cause.
CBD Training will closely follow any locally agreed procedures set out by the Local Authority and/or Safeguarding Children Board’s agreed processes and criteria for safeguarding individuals vulnerable to extremism and radicalisation. In the event of concerns about a person becoming radicalised consider will be given to using the LA Channel process.
CBD Training Ltd (CBD) is committed to providing a quality service for its learner’s, staff and associates and working in an open and accountable way that builds the trust and respect of all our learners and associates. One of the ways in which we can continue to improve our service is by listening and responding to the views of our learners, staff and associates and in particular by responding positively to complaints, and by putting mistakes right.
CBD Training Limited needs to keep certain information about its employees, learners and other users to allow it to monitor performance, achievements, and health and safety, for example. It is also necessary to process information so staff can be recruited and paid, courses organised and legal obligations to funding bodies and government complied with. To comply with the law, information must be collected and used fairly, stored safely and not disclosed to any other person unlawfully. To do this, CBD must comply with the Data Protection Principles which are set out in the Data Protection Act 1998.
