Equality & Diversity

Equality and Diversity at Keighley College

At Keighley College we are proud of the social and cultural diversity of our community and see it as a strength that inspires innovation and creativity.

We aim to provide a stimulating and enriching educational experience for all of our learners, which enables them to reach their full potential and develop a range of skills in preparation for employment and other opportunities when they leave us.
The College is home to people from a wide range of cultures and backgrounds with diverse beliefs, values and abilities. We believe that everyone should be treated with dignity and respect.

In keeping with these principles, we are committed to building an inclusive and safe learning and working environment where the values of respect and tolerance are at the heart of College life.

To help us achieve this, we have adopted a zero tolerance approach to any form of discrimination, bullying or harassment in our learning or workplace environments.

We are constantly striving to move beyond legal compliance towards best practice in promoting and celebrating equality and diversity. We have published a wide range of equality information that outlines how we intend to achieve our goals in relation to inclusion and fairness and how we will drive the equality and diversity agenda forward over the next few years.
