EQUALITY, Diversity and Inclusion

West Kent and Ashford College is committed to being an inclusive College, where all feel safe and valued. Our Strategic aims and core values reflect the environment in which our students study and live safely and with dignity and one in which our staff work effectively to foster and develop an atmosphere of respect and understanding where discrimination is not tolerated.


All our stakeholders are recognised as unique individuals, representing an array of different characteristics which set each other apart whilst uniting all in the College culture and mission. Our responsibility to promote equality of opportunity for students and staff is fundamental to the core values we foster: Our intention at all times is to be:

  • Inclusive and welcoming
  • Professional and efficient
  • Honest and reliable
  • Open and transparent
  • Supportive and caring
  • Responsible and accountable

Each individual is encouraged to reach their full potential through the development of their skills and knowledge based on their unique contribution and individuality regardless of age, disability, gender, including gender reassignment, race, sexual orientation, religion or belief, marital status or pregnancy.
