Blackpool Sixth Form's Equal Opportunities Policy
The college is committed to equality of opportunity for all individuals within a climate which actively promotes positive regard for the “Protected Characteristics” as identified in the Equality Act 2010: age, disability, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation as well as locally identified groups which are potentially socially excluded/disadvantaged.
The college is keen to ensure that equality of opportunity underpins all policies, which in turn ensures inclusive practices, procedures and actions. Pursuing equality of opportunity means that all forms of discrimination, prejudice, racist or sexist language and other forms of discriminatory behaviour will be challenged.
The college is fully compliant with the Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties) Regulations 2011.
Blackpool Sixth Form College is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all learners, staff and visitors. All staff will be carefully selected using recruitment and selection procedures designed to emphasise the college’s commitment to safeguarding. All posts, including volunteers, are subject to enhanced DBS clearance.
