Equality and diversity

West Notts has policies and procedures in place ensuring everyone is treated fairly. The college uses initiatives and positive action programmes to allow staff and students to get the most from their experience.

The college is committed to enhancing the opportunities for all members of its communities regardless of their race, gender, marital/civil partnership status, sexual orientation, religion or belief, gender reassignment, disability, age or whether they are pregnant. We pride ourselves on providing a warm and welcoming environment for all. For more information about our commitment to inclusion please see our Equality and Diversity Scheme.

The college’s statement of intent for equality, diversity and inclusion is clear that we will actively and proactively eradicate all forms of abuse, harassment and discrimination and this includes acts of anti-Semitism. The college has therefore adopted the IHRA working definition of anti-Semitism as:

“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.”
