Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

We are committed to creating an environment free from discrimination, and promoting dignity and respect for all, and where individual differences and the contributions of all staff, students, professionals, and participants are recognised and valued. We demonstrate this commitment by:

  • Recruiting, training and supporting students and staff regardless of ethnicity, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation or religion.
  • Taking seriously complaints of bullying, harassment, victimisation and unlawful discrimination by employees, students, users, suppliers, visitors, the public and any others in the course of the organisation’s work activities.
  • Making opportunities for training, development and progress available to all staff and students, who will be helped and encouraged to develop their full potential so their talents can be fully realised.
  • Monitoring the make-up of our community regarding information such as age, sex, ethnic background, sexual orientation, religion or belief, and disability to help us identify and address areas of under-representation.
