Equality and Diversity
Stockport College is committed to providing an environment that promotes equality for all and celebrates its diverse community.
Everyone is valued equally at the College. Through forums such as the student and staff Equalities Council and LGBTQ+ group, we are able to actively shape our learning environment to highlight inclusiveness.
At Stockport College we do not treat anyone less favourably on the basis of sex, disability, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, religion/faith/belief, gender reassignment, pregnancy/maternity or marriage/civil partnership status. These are protected characteristics as defined in the Equality Act 2010. The College expects all staff, students, visitors and on-site contractors to do the same.
We expect and encourage staff and students to work together to overcome all forms of discrimination and harassment. Through our shared College values every individual is respected as of right and this should always be reflected in our language, behaviours and actions.
At induction staff and students are provided with further information about Equality and Diversity within the College and what they can do to make a difference. Following this, all staff are required to take mandatory Equality and Diversity and Safeguarding modules.
