Our key priorities are developed on an annual basis and are intended to comply with requirements relating to race, ethnicity, age, gender, gender reassignment, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief.
To this end we aim to:
• Continue to develop a structured range of information gathering on equality and use the information gathered to tackle underperformance and underrepresentation by curriculum area and to take proactive action, linked into the self assessment process
• Continue to work to embed equality and diversity within all aspects of teaching and learning with differentiation being a key focus
• Enhance links between study support, teaching staff and students to improve teaching and learning strategies.
• Embed the requirements of the new SEND arrangements for students with additional needs
• Develop tutorial activities for students that prepare them for the world of work and the diverse environment
• Continue to develop respect for all people from different minority groups amongst all parts of the college and wider community, fostering good relations
• Extend the learner voice through a range of formal and informal means to enhance responses
• Ensure equality and diversity and community cohesion is positively promoted throughout the college through publicity materials, curriculum area initiatives and the annual Diversity Competition
• Continue to celebrate progress, endeavour and success through college wide activities
• Continue to work to develop the college premises to enable learners to access facilities and equipment
