Equality & Diversity

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.

Legal Duties

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.

Black Lives Matter

At Landmarks, we feel it is very important that everyone is treated fairly and with respect. It is for this reason that Landmarks supports the Black Lives Matter movement.

What is Black Lives Matter?

Black Lives Matter is a global organisation which aims to:

  • stop black people from being treated differently because of the colour of their skin;
  • stop police brutality;
  • end the racial bias towards black people.

Black Lives Matter hold peaceful demonstrations where people march on the street to show their support of the movement. People might show posters and banners to share their views and experiences.

Black Lives Matter is all about protesting for change in order to end racism. 

What is Landmarks doing to support Black Lives Matter?

Landmarks are committed to making sure that our college is a safe space that is welcoming to everyone – a space where our differences are celebrated and supported.

  • We talk about what is happening in the news and share our opinions about this.
  • We celebrate Black History Month in October and throughout the year so that we can learn about important people and events in black history.
  • We promote mutual respect in the way we speak and behave towards one another.
  • We learn about different cultures and races so that we are informed.
