Full Time and Part Time Adult Skills Learners – Diversity (2021-22 Year-End)
Impact on Diversity and Inclusion
Learning difficulty or disability
The College continues to support a very diverse learner body.
In line with 2020/21, slightly more females engaged with learning in 2021/2022. The ethnicity profile shows our adult learners as a group are increasingly more diverse than the local community. 48.1% of our learners are from minority groups. There are no significant achievement gaps based on ethnicity. When achievements of male and female learners are compared, males achieved at higher rate than females (+6.5%)
The College was pleased to support 536 adult learners with a declared learning difficulty or disability in 2021/22, through a wide range of support services. There is no significant difference in the achievement rates of adults who declare a disability and those who do not.
