We’re committed to maintaining a respectful community where we can all learn, work, develop and grow in a dignified and safe place. Equality, diversity and inclusion is a priority at Coleg Gwent, and we recognise the need for positive action to make sure that:

  • everybody has the support they need to achieve to the best of their ability
  • everybody enjoys their time at college, with nobody treated less favourably on the grounds of sex, race, disability, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, age, religion or belief, pregnancy/maternity status, lifestyle, social background, country of origin, language or any other grouping of our society

We’re committed to social justice – in other words, giving all individuals the opportunity to achieve their full potential – and we’re actively seeking to further diversify our workforce.

We’re committed to challenging the discrimination some groups experience in society, whatever form it takes, by making sure equality is at the heart of everything we do. We’ve developed inclusive practices in all areas to ensure all groups and individuals are able to work and learn in an environment which is free from discrimination and harassment on the grounds of gender, race, ethnicity, colour, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, age, marital status, family responsibility, trade union activity, religious or political belief.

We promote a culture which values diversity and equality of opportunity through a programme of dynamic, challenging and insightful events throughout the year. These promote awareness, bringing together both students and staff to learn, socialise and strengthen our community bonds. Together we aim to be an accepting community where everyone celebrates the differences between individuals and the benefits that diversity brings to the college.
