Havering College has a long held commitment to Equality and Diversity. The college’s values are of being passionate about teaching and learning and our students’ success, being innovative, optimistic and inclusive. It is vital to us that every learner has the chance to succeed at the college and to this end we have an identified route map to embrace, plan and monitor the promotion and implementation of our equality and diversity strategies led by our Vice Principal for Teaching, Learning and Success.
As a reflective organisation we recognise we can learn from others so we work with other organisations who can help us with this agenda, for example the Network for Black Professionals, Ashiana and Stonewall amongst others. We believe this results in a harmonious community of both staff and students and we endeavour to ensure we support the whole individual and their personal identity.
