Equality objectives

Our Equality Objectives 2012–2016

 
The Academy has developed an Equality Scheme and Action Plan extending our previous work in Race, Gender and Disability Equality to encompass all ‘Protected Characteristics’ as required by the Equality Act 2010. The plan is detailed and has been informed by consultation across the Academy. Key to this was our Staff and Student Equality Survey carried out in 2011.

Following from this work the Equality and Diversity Committee has identified three primary themes for our equality objectives:

1. Access 

To continue to improve access to Academy buildings and services for staff, students and visitors.

2. Widening Participation

To continue to develop our existing widening participation initiatives to enable us increase the diversity profile of our students.

3. Procurement

To promote equality and diversity and enhance transparency though our procurement procedures and third-party relationships.

Our commitment

‘As the Academy’s Senior Management Team representative for Equality and Diversity I am committed to ensuring that we work together as an institution to address these objectives and make them a reality over the next four years’ – Mark Racz, Deputy Principal
