Equality & Diversity

At Keighley College, we’re incredibly proud of our social and cultural diversity.

We welcome people from a wide range of cultures and backgrounds, something we see as a strength that inspires innovation and creativity. 

Everyone should be treated with dignity and respect, which is why we’re committed to building an inclusive learning and working environment with respect and tolerance at its heart. This allows our learners to reach their full potential and develop skills that help them go far after studying with us.

Equality Diversity

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.

To help us achieve our goals, we:

  • Have adopted a zero tolerance approach to discrimination, bullying or harassment 
  • Are constantly striving to move beyond legal compliance into best practice
  • Celebrate equality and diversity 
  • Have published a wide range of equality information that outlines how we aim to achieve our goals, and how we will drive equality and diversity forward over the next few years

As part of the Luminate Education Group, which includes Leeds City College, we share key policies – including equality and diversity policies which can be found below:
