Bolton College is committed to the promotion and development of equality of opportunity, and valuing and celebrating the diversity of all its staff and students.
We provide a safe and supportive environment which values individuals equally, regardless of:
The college is home to people from a wide range of cultures and backgrounds with diverse beliefs, values and abilities. We aim to meet the needs of all individuals and encourage them to share their experiences and beliefs.
We welcome students with learning difficulties and disabilities and support them according to their needs. If you feel you need support with learning when you come to college, we can arrange an interview with our Student Support team. Assessment will be treated discreetly and in confidence.
We work collaboratively with a range of community organisations and other partners to tackle social exclusion, address discrimination and promote community cohesion.
Bolton College is responsive to the needs and diversity of the local community and the success of all our students are at the heart of everything we do.
We want everyone to feel comfortable and secure enough to be themselves; we do not tolerate harassment, bullying, victimisation or discrimination.
Whilst English is our principal language, we will endeavour to provide information relating to the documents we produce in other formats and languages. If you require this type of support, please contact the Customer Services Manager by telephone on 01204 482040.
Our Single Equality Scheme incorporates the goals of our college Equality and Diversity Strategy, this document is currently being updated but will be available online within our Key Policies section and is currently under review, along with the action plans, as part of the work the College is undertaking with the National Centre for Diversity.
Bolton College has a zero tolerance towards antisemitism and has adopted the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s (IHRA) definition of antisemitism.
“Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.”
