At Coleg Gwent we are committed to providing a working environment which embraces diversity and which promotes equality of opportunity. This is underpinned by the Equality Act 2010 and will be adhered to at each stage of the recruitment process.

Our goal is to ensure these commitments are also embedded in our day-to-day working practices with our learners, colleagues, and partners.

We know the most successful teams are the most diverse teams. Equality, diversity, and inclusion provide the very foundation to our culture at Coleg Gwent. We want every individual to feel confident, proud, and able to bring their whole selves to work.

We are committed to being an anti-racist organisation and increasing diversity in the College by removing barriers and supporting all our staff to reach their potential. To ensure an improved representation in our workforce, applications are particularly welcome from minority groups including Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people, Females, LGBTQ+, non-binary and people with disabilities. Together we continue to build a workplace that not only celebrates the diverse voices of our colleagues but also represents the communities we serve.

We welcome applications from candidates who speak languages other than English and everyone regardless of age, marriage and civil partnership (both same sex and opposite sex), impairment or health condition, sex, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, gender identity or gender expression in line with our Equality Opportunities policy. All campuses are accessible and facilities such as prayer rooms are available.

We are a Disability Confident Employer and affiliates of the Black Leadership Group. Key to supporting this work and providing peer support are 6 Board sponsored Staff Networks (Enabled, Men’s Alliance, Women Together, Cynefin, LGBTQ+ and Race Alliance).

What brings us together?

We are committed to building a culture of inclusion that empowers our people to thrive and fosters a sense of belonging.

To support the College in being a respectful community we have an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (ED&I) steering group. Hear our ED&I Champions talk about why they are so passionate about equality, diversity, and inclusion – Link in attached document.
