My College @ The City of Liverpool College

Equality & Diversity

Here at the College, we want you to know that you will be treated with respect and dignity during your time with us. To achieve this, we will work to ensure that you are not treated any less favourably because of your:

  •   age
  •   disability
  •   gender reassignment
  •   pregnancy and maternity status
  •   race
  •   religion or belief
  •   sex
  •   sexual orientation.

The college will not tolerate any form of bullying or harassment. Everyone needs to be aware of the College’s Single Equality Scheme which highlights the importance of treating everyone with respect.

What is bullying?

This is a harmful act or gesture towards an individual or group that can lead to serious harm or stress and is always taken very seriously by the College.

What is harassment?

This is inappropriate and unacceptable behaviour and includes: inappropriate banter, jokes or verbal abuse; inappropriate pictures, slogans on clothing and photographs or films on phones; unwelcome remarks; unwelcome physical contact; offensive language, including homophobic and transphobic language; offensive and threatening texts, emails or use of social networks.

How can I stop bullying and harassment?

  • Always show respect for other students, staff and visitors to the college
  • Set a good example with your own language and behaviour
  • Make a stand against bullying or harassment.

What can I do if I think I am being bullied or harassed?

  • Ask the person to stop
  • Speak to a member of staff you can trust
  • If you want to make a complaint about a person’s inappropriate behaviour you can email: www.complaints@liv-coll.ac.uk
