Equality and Diversity

West Lothian College is committed to the provision of equal opportunities in all aspects of
college life.

We have a range of policies which ensure that staff, learners and visitors are treated equally regardless of colour, race, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, disability, gender or gender reassignment, age and sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, marriage or civil partnership.

We value diversity and aim to advance equality of opportunity, foster good relations and eliminate discrimination, victimisation and harassment in all our activities.

We also support LGBT organisations such as LGBT youth. For further information on LGBT youth, visit 


Our Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Policy and Equalities Action Plan outlines how we will meet our General and Public Sector Equality Duties. The Equality Mainstreaming Report reports on progress made against our actions. Additional documents that support Equality work are:
