Halesowen College is celebrating after it has retained its Leader in Diversity Award for the last nine years.
The College was assessed again in December when students, staff and senior leaders were asked to show why the College is a leader in diversity.
The College has updated its Equality and Diversity policy, set challenging targets and put together an equality dashboard of student information. They are also working with the National Association of Student Service Managers (NAMSS) at its equality and diversity group to support all learners across the country.
It is also hosting a range of events including a Ready, Respect Safe Fayre this week for students to get a variety of information from Disability Awareness, Black Country Health Care, Dudley Carers, All Age Eating Disorders Service and Back Country Women’s Aid.
And the College will be hosting a Diversity Day Conference on Friday 31 March with talks on Autism, physical disabilities, sign language, race, gender and LGBTQ+. There will also be a Bhangra workshop during the lunch break.
Haroon Bashir, Head of Equality and Diversity at Halesowen College, said: “We are delighted to have retained this award which shows we are a leader in diversity. As a College we are always looking at ways to promote equality and diversity and the positive way we work with our students and staff.
“At Halesowen College we are proud to have a diverse range of learners and staff. It is part of our core values and strategic aims that everyone has a voice and can be who they want to be at the College.”
