In addition, TIA undertakes rigorous reference checks. TIA has a strict code of conduct for working with children and a comprehensive child protection policy. Our staff is trained to recognize and report any suspected abuse.

We hire regardless of nationality, gender, race, religion, age, or sexual orientation. We value diversity and the richness diversity brings.
