Link Education USA, in its commitment to fostering an inclusive, fair, and just educational environment, has instituted this Equity Policy to ensure that all students enrolled in the American Certificate in Fitness Training (ACFT) are treated without any form of discrimination or prejudice.
Equity in Treatment: All students, irrespective of their race, creed, gender, sexual orientation, place of birth, physical or mental disability, or any other characteristic or status protected by applicable laws, shall receive equal treatment throughout their association with the Link Education USA.
Fair Evaluation: Assessment and grading within the ACFT program shall be based purely on academic merit, effort, and performance. At no time shall extraneous factors influence the assessment system.
Anti-Bribery Stance: Link Education USA operates under a strict anti-bribery policy. No staff, faculty, or representative of Link Education USA shall accept gifts, money, favors, or any other form of inducement in exchange for academic or pedagogical benefits. Any such incident, if identified, will be dealt with as per the provisions laid down by the governing laws and institute regulations.
Recommendation System: While we promote an environment that is free from prejudice and bribery, Link Education USA recognizes a recommendation system. Current students or alumni who recommend prospective students to our courses may be eligible for discounts on course fees. However, these discounts:
a. Are standardized and transparent.
b. Do not offer any academic advantage or preference to the recommender or the recommended.
c. Are strictly confined to financial benefits regarding course fees.
Training: All staff members, including teaching and non-teaching staff, shall undergo periodic training to ensure adherence to this Equity Policy.
Monitoring: A designated committee will periodically monitor and review the implementation of this policy. The committee will also address grievances and provide redressal, if necessary.
Feedback System: A transparent feedback mechanism will be established for students and staff to report any discrepancies, concerns, or suggestions related to this policy.
Breach of any provision of this policy shall result in appropriate disciplinary action, which may range from counseling to termination of employment or expulsion, depending on the severity of the breach.
Students or staff who feel that they have been treated unfairly or in violation of this policy are encouraged to approach the designated committee or the institute’s ombudsman for redressal.
At Link Education USA, we are committed to providing an environment that nurtures learning and growth, free from any form of discrimination or bias. We believe in upholding the highest standards of ethics and integrity in our operations. This Equity Policy stands testament to our unwavering commitment to these principles.
Note: This is a sample equity policy and may require modifications to better suit the specific requirements, regulations, and context of the Link Education USA. Legal consultation is also recommended before finalizing and implementing any policy.
At Link Education USA, we are committed to upholding the highest standards of integrity and transparency in our online education programs. We believe that an honest learning environment is crucial for the success of our students and the credibility of our institution. In light of this, we have established clear policies and procedures to address instances of misconduct and ensure accountability. Below are our policies concerning specific violations:
a) Misrepresentation of Identity or Eligibility Status: We expect all participants to provide accurate and truthful information regarding their identity and eligibility status when enrolling in our courses. Any attempt to falsify, impersonate, or misrepresent this information is strictly prohibited and will result in immediate disciplinary action, which may include expulsion from our programs and notification to relevant authorities. Our verification process is robust, and we employ various methods to ensure the authenticity of the information provided by participants.
b) Unauthorized Assistance on Assessments: Our assessments are designed to evaluate the individual capabilities and understanding of the subject matter by each student. Receiving or providing unauthorized assistance during assessments compromises the integrity of the evaluation process and is not tolerated. Participants found to be involved in such activities will face serious consequences, including but not limited to, invalidation of assessment results, academic probation, or expulsion from the program.
c) Misrepresentation of Certificate’s Purpose and Scope: The certificate issued upon completion of our courses is a testament to the knowledge and skills acquired in the specific program of study and should not be misrepresented as a professional certification. It is crucial that participants do not claim, state, or imply that the certificate serves purposes or has a scope beyond that which is specified by Link Education USA. Violation of this policy may result in revocation of the certificate and other disciplinary measures.
d) Violations of Established Policies: We have a comprehensive set of policies in place to ensure a conducive learning environment for all participants. Engaging in activities that violate these established policies will lead to disciplinary actions, which could include suspension, expulsion, or legal action, depending on the severity of the violation. We encourage all participants to familiarize themselves with our policies and adhere strictly to them.
