Equality & Diversity
South and City College Birmingham is genuinely committed to equality, diversity and inclusion for learners, staff, governors, employers, community groups and members of the public on all sites and for others who come into contact with the whole college.
We are proud to be a multi cultural, multi racial college and are striving to be an inclusive organisation where individual differences are accepted and valued and where everyone is able to fulfil their potential. The college is opposed to all forms of discriminatory behaviour and practices based on the following protected characteristics;
- Gender reassignment
- Marriage and civil partnership
- Pregnancy and maternity
- Religion or belief
- Sexual orientation
- Sex (gender)
We believe that all learners and staff are entitled to respect and parity of esteem and to work and study in a welcoming, safe and non threatening environment. The college upholds its legal duty under the Equality Act 2010 to:
Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and any other conduct prohibited by the Act;
Advance equality of opportunity who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it; and
Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.
Any complaints of discrimination or harassment will be treated seriously, be fully investigated and may result in disciplinary action by the College Management.
In its last OFSTED inspection the college was graded outstanding for equality and diversity and also won the ESF equal opportunities mainstreaming leader award.
