We are committed to and strive for equality of opportunity for all of our students and staff, and recognise and celebrate their diversity. For this statement and strategy to be made a reality, effective leadership and management will be provided and a corresponding commitment sought from every member of staff and all the student body.

As part of our policy, we promise:

  • To provide an environment where all people are respected and treated fairly, regardless of irrelevant characteristics or distinctions.

  • To develop a culture in which diversity is celebrated.

  • Not to discriminate unfairly or illegally against anyone.

  • To take positive action to promote equality, diversity and fair access.

  • To embed equality and diversity at the heart of our mission and values. This includes taking action against individuals who behave in a discriminatory manner.

Gender Pay Gap Report

Under the UK Government’s new Gender Pay Gap Regulations, employers in Great Britain with more than 250 employees are requested to report their gender pay gap.

The gender pay gap shows the difference in the average hourly earnings of men and women across an organisation regardless of their roles, industry sectors or seniority.

The statistics can be affected by a range of factors, including the different number of men and women in all roles right across the workforce.
