College E&D Ranking Increases

Solihull Sixth Form College has been praised for it’s work in promoting Equality and Diversity thanks to the National Centre for Diversity.

The College has worked hard to raise the profile of equality and diversity among staff, students and visitors and this has been recognised in the NCFD Grand Awards Top 100 Index for 2020. The College was ranked 48th in the Top 100, but is now up to 32nd place. It is all thanks to the hard work of our Equality and Diversity team and all members of the College community.

Assistant Principal Louise Dale-Barron leads the College’s work on Equality and Diversity and she commented:

“As a College, we are proud of the work we do to ensure that all members of our community are treated fairly and their achievements and diversity is celebrated. Having recently gone through a re-accreditation process, we have demonstrated how seriously we take equality and diversity and this improvement in our standing within the Top 100 Index demonstrates that commitment.”

This news follows notification back in December that the College had successfully retained the Investors in Diversity Award following reassessment. The award is recognised as the national equality standard for improving Fairness, Respect, Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Engagement practices.
