British Values

Fundamental British Values underpin what it is to be a citizen in a modern and diverse Great Britain valuing our community and celebrating diversity of the UK. They help us to create an orderly society and help citizens to feel safe and valued.

As part of our responsibilities under the Prevent Strategy Vision Training promote Fundamental British Values to people who use our educational and training services.

Fundamental British Values are:

  • Democracy
  • The Rule of Law
  • Individual Liberty
  • Mutual Respect for and Tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.

Vision Training, through our delivery teams, embed and promote British Values into training and development activities for example we:

  • Encourage learners to accept responsibility for their actions and behaviours and understand that choices they make can impact not only themselves but others around them e.g. in the workplace, during sessions with delivery staff, in the home environment and the wider community.
  • Encourage learners to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence
  • Enable learners to respect the civil and criminal law of England, to distinguish right from wrong, providing examples that apply within their work environments.
  • Encourage respect for democracy and support for participation in the democratic processes
  • Promote diversity, encouraging learners to embrace difference and respect other people’s culture, traditions and ideas.
  • Encourage learners to acquire a broad general knowledge of and respect for public institutions and services in England
