Equality and Diversity
At Landmarks, we are proud of the diversity of our community and see it as a strength that inspires innovation and creativity.
We aim to provide a stimulating and enriching educational experience for all of our learners, which enables them to reach their full potential and develop a range of skills in preparation for adulthood.
We believe that everyone should be treated with dignity and respect.
We believe all of our learners progress should not be disadvantaged because of any protected characteristic. We monitor progress within our Annual Equalities Report found here.
In keeping with these principles, we are committed to building an inclusive and safe learning and working environment where the values of respect and tolerance are at the heart of College life.
To help us achieve this, we have adopted a zero-tolerance approach to any form of discrimination, bullying or harassment in our learning or workplace environments.
We are constantly striving to move beyond legal compliance towards best practice in promoting and celebrating equality and diversity. We have a Safeguarding, Prevent and Equalities Committee (SPEC) charged with ensuring college activities support this ambition as demonstrated within our Single Equality Scheme found below.
Our equality information reports and equality objectives set out how we are meeting our legal duties under the Equality Act 2010. Our Equality Information Reports can be found here.
