Access and Participation Statement

Our Vision

The purpose of the School is to provide students with the skills and knowledge to enable them to access careers and improve life chances. We wish to develop a genuine student- centred culture and gain a reputation as a high-quality provider of further and higher education.

Mission Statement

The School has, strategically, taken an inclusive approach to the work of engaging with individuals and groups of individuals with protected characteristics (as defined by the Equality Act 2010). As a training provider, we have implemented a differentiated approach to the support needs of our further and higher education students. One very important aspect of the work of the School is to stimulate and support progression at all levels.

The School HE strategy is focused upon the development and delivery of high quality, vocationally relevant programmes to support internal progression, widen participation and to meet and external demand. There are four key priorities within this strategy.
