Single Equality Scheme

Our commitment to equality and diversity. 

“Oaklands is committed to promoting equality and diversity in an inclusive and supportive environment.There is zero tolerance to any form of behaviour that contravenes the policy.”

Oaklands College is committed to the promotion and implementation of equality in all of its activities – as a provider of services, as an employer and as a member of the community.

The student experience is at the heart of all college policies and procedures. It places great emphasis on access to education and aims to remove barriers in order to create a culture of inclusiveness.

Oaklands College welcomes diversity and recognises values, as well as celebrating and respecting the many different contributions and needs of our students, staff and the communities we serve.

We value the diversity brought to our workforce by individuals, and believe that the college will benefit from engaging staff from a variety of backgrounds, thus allowing it to meet the needs of a diverse student population.

The College will treat all employees and students with respect and dignity, and seek to provide a positive working and learning environment, free from direct or indirect discrimination, harassment or victimisation.

The College will seek to continuously challenge its values and practice to ensure that equality and diversity issues do not start and end with  a policy statement.
