Equality objectives 

​Nottingham College’s core drive is to provide a supportive inclusive working and learning environment for all. The College has set its equality objectives which comply with legislative Public Sector Equality Duties and which provide performance indicators for all college operations. Objectives are to challenge discrimination and disadvantage; raise standards; and advance aspirations of all of our stakeholders. Our objectives are to:

  • Raise the achievement and success levels of different groups of students and work towards eliminating the gap in achievement between students with protected characteristics and those without
  • Ensure all teaching, learning and assessment promotes, advances and celebrates diversity and British Values 
  • Recruit, support and develop a diverse staff population which reflects and meets the needs of students and the community the college serves
  • Engage with students and stakeholders to improve student satisfaction for all groups and enhance the student experience
  • Support and enable access to learning for a diverse range of students
