Equality & Diversity at Sense College Loughborough

We are proud of our College.

We believe that everyone is equal and must be treated with respect. We do not allow students or staff to discriminate against others because of any of the protected characteristics of diversity:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Gender reassignment
  • Pregnancy and maternity
  • Race (this includes ethnic or national origins, colour or nationality)
  • Religion or belief (this includes lack of belief)
  • Sex
  • Sexual orientation
  • Marriage and civil partnerships

We challenge those who breach this Code. Identifying with one protected characteristic does not give anyone the right to discriminate against, harass or bully people who are in a different protected characteristic.

Single Equality Scheme

Sense College Loughborough respects and values people of different backgrounds and abilities. We value the fact that people are different and we celebrate the richness this brings to our college.

We want our college to be as inclusive as possible, from access to our buildings to progressing in ambitions for life and work. This Single Equality Scheme brings together evidence of how well the College is doing and what we want to do to improve still further.
