Our Equality Strategy and Policy

At New College Lanarkshire we all have a responsibility to ensure that everyone is treated respectfully and fairly under the Equality Act (2011). The Equality Act (2010) requires us to;

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment, victimisation and other conduct prohibited by the Act;
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people from different protected characteristic groups;
  • Foster good relations between people from different protected characteristic groups, tackling prejudice and promoting understanding between
    people from different groups.

The Action Plan set out in New College Lanarkshires Equalities Outcome Plan should be read in conjunction with the following documents, all of which contain actions aimed at increased participation, widening access and raising attainment of under-represented groups or those who may require additional support to achieve at College:
