Equality and Diversity

Middlesbrough College aims to be one of the leading organisations for equality, diversity and inclusion and acknowledges that equality of opportunity and the recognition and promotion of diversity and providing an environment where everyone feels comfortable and confident bringing their whole self to work are integral to its success.

Middlesbrough College recognises its legal and moral obligations to:

  • Eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not
  • Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not

The College considers the impact its policies, decisions and day-to-day activities may have on people who are protected under the Equality Act 2010 and how it is able to positively contribute to the advancement of equality and promote good relations.  The College aims to promote all other forms and strands of equality and human rights that are relevant.
