Our Core Principles and Values

Salugen and the training we deliver always puts people at the centre. Therefore, we consciously align ourselves with the principles and values of Getting It Right For Every Child, the Curriculum for Excellence, the Early Years FrameworkWaldorf Education and Social Pedagogy. We believe that at the heart of all these policies and approaches lie the three fundamental principles of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity that as individuals, professionals and a company we strive to uphold.


We believe individual autonomy is a basic human right. As individuals and as a business, we want to feel empowered to make decisions and take action. As a training provider we want to give you a service that provides you with the flexibility to achieve your goals in ways that best suit you and your clients.


Valuing integrity both personally and professionally means that we strive to do the right thing, even when we think no one is looking. We also value honesty, transparency and a commitment to doing what’s best for any and everyone, whether they our clients, teammates, company or the wider community.


We will always challenge ourselves to improve. We are a work in progress, striving to improve and do better; always seeking to think of new and creative ways to solve problems; never afraid to take a calculated risk. Finding new ways to solve a problem can help us, our clients and the company move forward.


We never lose sight of the fact that growth of a company follows the professional growth of its employees. Valuing growth means that you continuously seek to improve both yourself and your company. Healthy growth and development is conditional on mutually beneficial relationships. Once again, this is something that lies at the core of all the services we provide. Providing an environment that fosters personal development is what we train people to do.


Being service-minded means that we care about providing quality experiences to the clients we serve. For Salugen, this value also extends to supporting our wider community, locally, nationally and internationally. To us, valuing service means that we aim to provide meaningful experiences to the benefit of all. Ultimately, service lies at the heart of all we do.


Upholding the individual is central to everything we do. Seeing diversity as a strength is explicit in all aspects of our training, but also in our approach to business. Seeking to understand, respect and value difference is one of the key factors that make us strong as individuals, professionals and a company. Inclusive environments which value equality of opportunity and diversity are fundamental aspects of healthy growth for all.


Salugen has a team that are experts in understanding the training needs of professionals and delivering high quality, best practise based and research-led training solutions.
