Equality and diversity

Six students in group

Birmingham Metropolitan College is committed to ensuring equality of opportunity for all who learn and work within the organisation and those who may potentially do so. We will promote equality and diversity in all that we do.

We respect and value individuals regardless of their protected characteristics. We will strive to remove conditions that place people at a disadvantage and will actively combat discrimination. We will pay particular attention to discrimination that affects the legally recognised protected characteristics: age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion and belief, sex and sexual orientation. We will strive vigorously to remove conditions which place people at a disadvantage and will actively combat discrimination.

Our Equality and Diversity Policy sets out in more detail how we will do this and meet the requirements of the Equality Act 2010.
