Equality & Diversity
Blackburn College is committed to the promotion and development of equality of opportunity, and valuing and celebrating the diversity of all its staff and students.
We provide a safe and supportive environment which values individuals equally, regardless of:
- Social Background
- Ethnic origin
- Religion or belief
- Sexual orientation
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 Additional Learning Support team. Assessment will be treated discreetly and in confidence.

Blackburn College is responsive to the needs and diversity of the local community and the success of all our students are at the heart of everything we do. We work collaboratively with a range of community organisations and other partners to tackle social exclusion, address discrimination and promote community cohesion.
We want everyone to feel comfortable and secure enough to be themselves; we do not tolerate harassment, bullying, victimisation or discrimination. We will endeavour to provide information relating to the documents we produce in other formats and languages.
