Equality Diversity and Inclusion Statement

The College has an ED&I Policy, which presents our

Mainstreaming Vision:

"To nurture an environment in which the equality,

diversity and inclusion of students, staff and visitors

from all backgrounds are routinely anticipated, expertly

accommodated and positively celebrated."

As detailed by the College's ED&I Initiative 2017-2025,

key aspects of effectively mainstreaming the Public Sector

Equality Duty across College functions are:

• Strategic management and operations.

• Evidence consideration.

• Student, staff and community engagement and

involvement.

The College is committed to developing a diverse workforce

which reflects the communities we serve. As such, we

will appoint, develop and promote on the basis of merit

and ability alone and strive to ensure fairness, advance

opportunities and foster respect for all our applicants and

staff.

In relation to disabled applicants in particular, we will

consider all applications for employment, bearing in

mind the aptitudes of the individuals concerned. Where

an existing employee becomes disabled every effort is

made to ensure that their employment with the College

continues. The College's policy is to provide training, career

development and opportunities for promotion to disabled

staff which are, as far as possible, identical to those for

other employees.

City of Glasgow College also understands that it is essential

to develop a supportive organisational culture, which values

people from all sections of society and the contribution each

individual can make. In short, the College will strive never to

discriminate because of:

• Age.

• Disability.

• Gender identity and reassignment.

• Marriage and civil partnership.

• Pregnancy and maternity.

• Race.

• Religion or belief.

• Sex.

• Sexual orientation.

We endeavour to ensure that all our staff policies,

procedures, practices and benefits are inclusive across

all these protected characteristics. All Colleges policies,

procedures and decisions will undergo an Equality Impact

Assessment (EqIA). Please see the ED&I section of the

College website for more details.
