As always this is much more than just a partnership, this year marks 50 years since since Parliament first voted to legalise homosexuality in the UK. We in turn have our part to play, we launched our driver diploma program in 2012. The aim of the bespoke accredited training is to support professional development of our drivers, but more so equip to them with the skills they require to provide the highest level of service as a professional Private Hire Driver. Our in-house driver training incorporates robust equality training, with participants shown the hard-hitting Love has no labels here – showing that we are all the same, regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage or civil partnership, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation or pregnancy and maternity.
Michael Salter-Church MBE, Chair, Pride in London says: “I salute Addison Lee for the journey that it has undertaken as a business. Its equality, diversity and disability training is unmatched within the minicab industry. We are delighted to have Addison Lee as our transport partner, helping volunteers, performers and others to create a successful Pride.”
We care about diversity at Addison Lee and are a proud member of the Stonewall ‘Diversity Champions’ scheme. As a Diversity Champion, Addison Lee has access to best practice sharing, networking opportunities and research from a wide range of organisations. We are working with Stonewall to promote diversity and improve both our service for the LGBT community.
The Addison Lee Diploma is accredited by People 1st who are the Sector Skills Council for Travel, Tourism & Transport. They have a reputation for industry-defining intelligence and delivery. The quality accreditation was achieved by People 1st sending a team of inspectors to review Addison Lee’s training materials, interviewing the trainers extensively, checking their credentials and observing the training delivery. The Addison Lee Diploma has just been re-accredited for another three years.
