What Does Equality Mean?
Everyone is entitled to receive support to achieve their potential regardless of age, ethnic background, disability, gender, religion, sexuality or social grouping. You are entitled to be treated with respect and in return, are expected to respect others.
The College supports and promotes the principle of equality of opportunity in all aspects of its work. All reasonable steps will be taken to ensure that all applicants and learners are treated equally and fairly, irrespective of age, disability, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, race, nationality, culture and religion or belief.
Equality Means Saying “No” to Bullying
If you are picked on by others (learners or staff) in any way – for example: hurtful name-calling, jokes, unwanted physical contact, threats, texts or emails – seek help. Tell your Personal Development Tutor or lecturers or call in to see a member of the Learner Services team.
