Diversity & Equality

Redcar & Cleveland College is fully committed to providing and celebrating equality and diversity.

The College Group seeks to achieve the objectives set down in the Equality Act 2010:

 

  1. The College Group will ensure safe access to all buildings i.e. automatic and disabled doors at all main entrances and provide specialist equipment for staff and students, including but not limited to: evacuation chairs, hearing loops, desks and chairs.

 

  1. The College Group continuously makes significant investment in the appointment of specialist lecturers to support students with learning difficulties and/or disabilities. There is a team of Learning Support Assistants who can provide a variety of support for learning. There is a continuing programme of continuous professional development to ensure the provision of a high level of appropriate support for learners who have learning difficulties and/or disabilities.

 

  1. Safe movement around the College Group is ensured through rigorous monitoring to make sure that lifts are in good working order and available, as well as through the provision of drop kerbs, manifestations on automatic doors, clear glass windows and clearly marked disabled parking spaces.

 

  1. Personal Emergency Evacuation plans are created for anyone who may have difficulty in the event of an evacuation, whether this may be permanent or temporary.

 

  1. The College Group undertakes regular audits to ensure students have access to the support and equipment identified in their Educational Health Care Plans (EHCP) and that funding guidelines are met. The College Group has specialist staff to oversee the EHCP process within the College Group and ensure adherence to legal guidelines.

 

  1. The Learning Support team provides information, advice and arranges support, where necessary, for students with disabilities. There is specialist equipment and software available through the specialist learning support team.

 

  1. Admissions panels are held with appropriately qualified staff to ensure the support needs of individual students are taken into account when making a decision. Appeals against a decision not to offer a place are dealt with under the complaints policy.

 

  1. All students with learning difficulties and/or disabilities are offered the same opportunities as other students to take part in all aspects of the study programme, including enrichment, work experience and enterprise. Counselling and welfare services are described in the College Group Student Guide, which is issued to students together with the Complaints and Disciplinary Procedure leaflets at induction.
