Equal Opportunities

The college prides itself on being a caring community. We believe everyone is of equal value irrespective of gender, ethnic origin, disability, class, age, creed, sexuality or any other perceived difference and we take active steps to prevent discrimination and promote equal opportunity.

The Adult & Higher Education Division is committed to providing high quality education and training that reflects the best practice in equality of opportunity. We strive to create successful learning for all students by establishing a supportive environment, encouraging every student to aspire, apply and achieve.

The Division also aims to encourage the active participation of all sections of the community in lifelong learning. It will provide learning opportunities that accommodate diversity and work to create a community which is tolerant and respectful of others and where acts of disrespect and displays of intolerance are not accepted.

Students and staff should be treated with respect and dignity and we will seek to provide an environment free from harassment, prejudice, unfair and unlawful discrimination and victimisation. With regards to the accessibility of our sites, we can offer:

  • a number of car parking spaces for students with mobility difficulties
  • accessible toilets on the ground floor of the centre
  • classrooms are all based on the ground floor
  • a range of specialist equipment for students with particular needs
  • all areas are wheelchair accessible

We look forward to seeing you on our courses and at our centres. If you have any questions or queries please contact us on 01962 886166.
