Equality & Diversity
At Brockenhurst College we believe in treating people equally and with respect; this means treating people as individuals.
Our Equality & Diversity Committee is made up of three task groups who meet regularly to review policies, carry out impact assessment and organise student led promotions and events.
Our Equality Scheme
All members of the College community are asked to actively support our Equality Scheme by adhering to the following guidelines.
Giving opportunities to all
Providing access to education, training, services and facilities
Taking positive action to address imbalances or under-representation
Celebrating differences and promoting diversity
Refraining from using language or behaviour that might cause offence
Valuing each individual and their unique circumstances
Accepting that each person has their own set of personal circumstances, backgrounds and cultures
Ensuring that individuals do not experience discrimination or harassment as a result of these
Disability Confident Committed
Disability Confident is a government scheme designed to encourage employers to recruit and retain disabled people and those with health conditions.
Disability Confident has taken over from the Two Ticks Positive about Disabled People scheme, of which we originally gained.
Disability Confident broadens and deepens our existing commitment as an employer.
The Inspiration Room
We have a specially-designed ‘Inspiration Room’, which is staffed by members of the learning assistant team.
This pleasant facility is available for students on the autistic spectrum and for other vulnerable students who might benefit from a quiet space to work and study.
