Educational Living will recruit candidates at all times in an ethical and responsible manner consistent with the requirements of the training and will ensure that application processes are explicit and defensible and that equity and access principles are observed.
This is based on the premise that enrolment should only occur after Educational Living provided the individual candidate with access to a reasonable amount of information prior to enrolment in the selected training courses and/or programs.
