Equality and Diversity

Equality And Diversity Header 04 

We have a diverse community at Gateshead College and we are committed to maintaining an environment where diversity and mutual respect can flourish and where everyone feels valued.

Everyone who studies and works here has a responsibility to ensure that students and staff are free to pursue their college lives without any kind of overt or covert harrassment or discrimination.

We will continue to develop, promote, embed and evaluate our equal opportunities policies and practices so that college life is systematically and continuously improved for everyone. We believe that all forms of discrimination are unacceptable.

We have put in place a number of policies and procedures to enable us to protect and enhance the experience of our learners, staff and visitors. These include:

  • Equality and Diversity Policy
  • Single Equality Scheme
  • Single Equality Scheme Action Plan
  • Disability Statement Leaflet
  • Disability Statement  
  • Disability Equality Scheme Annual Report

These policies can be downloaded on our Publications and FOI page.
