Equality and Diversity

Equal Opportunities at Walsall College

Effective teaching and learning requires a safe environment, free from prejudice and discrimination, where the values and ethos of equality and diversity inform all College activity. Walsall College, therefore, has zero tolerance in relation to discrimination against people who share the following protected characteristics: race, gender, gender reassignment, age, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity.

Our Single Equality Scheme and associated policies outline how we seek to ensure that the College is free from unlawful discrimination, as defined by the Equality Act 2010, and strives constantly to move beyond legal compliance towards excellence and best practice in promoting and celebrating equality and diversity.
