Buxton College is committed to promoting equality in all aspects of College life. We want everyone who is involved with us to have the best possible experience and to feel included in every aspect of study and other activities. If you ever feel that your individuality is not being promoted and recognised please tell us. Equality is not just about celebrating differences, it is also about stopping any discrimination and you can all help us with this by letting us know if there is any aspects of your life with us that you feel is not being addressed. We value each person in the College and want to ensure that you all have a positive experience. This applies to you whatever type of course you are on, based in College or in work whether you are part-time or full-time.
 
We're committed to addressing inequality in relation to students' age, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability, religion and belief, and discrimination is not tolerated by anybody connected with our College. We want you to tell us if there are aspects of our provision that we could improve for different groups. AT FE STARs meetings your representatives will let us know if there are changes we need to make in the College to make it a more inclusive place to study and enjoy other activities.

During your time with us many of you will be taking part in projects to learn more about our diverse society. You will create presentations, take part in competitions and other enrichment or tutorial activity to explore difference amongst individuals. You will be able to research new disabilities, religions, ethnic groups or cultures, or sexual orientations. You will discover how people are treated by society and what role you can have in promoting equality and challenging discrimination.
       
The Students' Union (SU) is also committed to promoting equality and diversity and runs many events throughout the year to celebrate unity and diversity, why not get involved in some of these events.

The Equality and Human Rights Commission promote and monitor human rights; and to protect, enforce and promote equality across the nine "protected" grounds - age, disability, gender, race, religion and belief, pregnancy and maternity, marriage and civil partnership, sexual orientation and gender reassignment.
