We provide a safe and supportive environment which values individuals equally, regardless of:
• Gender reassignment

• Sexual orientation or re-orientation
• Pregnancy and maternity
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 Learning Support team. Assessment will be treated discreetly and in confidence.
We work collaboratively with a range of employers , community organisations and other partners to tackle social exclusion, address discrimination and promote community cohesion.
Askham Bryan College is responsive to the needs and diversity of the local communities it serves 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.
Our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Policy reflects the ethos of the college in relation to the protected characteristics as described by the Equality Act 2010, This document is available online within our Key Policies section.
