Equality and Diversity

Equality and Diversity

We aim to create a tolerant community where freedom of belief and expression can be relied upon and where human rights are ensured. Our codes of conduct will emphasise the value of being non-judgemental where difference is perceived and will show how rights are balanced with responsibilities.

Race, religion, sexual orientation and gender relations can provide trigger points for prejudice, discrimination, harassment and aggression that cannot be legislated out of existence in a single community. At Briton College we challenge behaviour and require staff and students to accept and respect the practices and dignity of all our colleagues and students.

Our staff and student community shall bring a wide perspective to international cultures. But we must improve the confidence of staff and students, effectively and proportionately, to challenge and eliminate discriminatory and prejudicial behaviour.
