Dudley College of Technology, its partners and subcontractors, recognise the important role it can play in helping to prevent people being drawn into terrorism and in providing appropriate advice and support.
The college has a vital role in ensuring that groups or individuals within the college and those whose learning is facilitated by its partners and subcontractors are not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to unduly, or illegally, influence them.
It follows equal opportunity guidance which guarantees that there will be no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status or any protected characteristic.
The college, its partners and subcontractors, uphold the acceptance of fundamental British values which it is its responsibility to promote. In doing so its learners will be able to grow as individuals and citizens in the community in which they live.
The British values are:
- Your opinion counts
The rule of law
- No one is above the law
- Laws protect everyone
- Innocent until proved guilty
- Freedom of speech
Mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs
- All backgrounds and cultures
- All ages
- All genders and sexualities
- All religions and beliefs
The college, its partners and subcontractors, seek to create an environment that enables students to become rounded members of society who treat others with respect and tolerance.
