Equal Opportunities for All
The College is committed to reducing and eliminating all forms of disadvantage and discrimination by legislation and positive action.
The progression towards equality will ensure that no group receives less favourable treatment, thereby enabling all learners, regardless of race, religious belief, gender, sexuality, gender reassignment, pregnancy/maternity, age and disability to have equal access to the provision of goods, services, education, training, facilities and premises.
The College will develop relevant procedures to eliminate all forms of direct, indirect and combined discrimination relating to the equality strands (the ‘protected characteristics’ as defined within the tenets of the Equality Act 2010).
