We are delighted to announce that Leeds City College has been awarded the Investors in Diversity Standard at Stage 2!

This award is the result of two years’ hard work, and gives us a strong foundation for continuous improvement in Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.

Our final survey results included the following:

  • 90% of staff surveyed felt valued and respected by their line manager
  • 89% of staff surveyed said that the College had given them the time and opportunity to find out more about diversity and improve awareness of EDI
  • 78% of students surveyed felt their tutors take EDI seriously in the way they behave and the things they say
  • 77% of external partners said that their approach to equality, diversity and inclusion has benefited from working with the College

Our assessor comment read, “It has been a pleasure to work with LCC and I am pleased to see the exemplary EDI practice that has been evidenced during my time as the IiD Advisor.”

A big thank you to all everybody who supported the process. The students involved did brilliantly during their interviews and were a credit to their tutors and the College.
