West Lothian College nominated for two awards at Scottish Diversity Awards

Herald Awards

Hot on the heels of being named as finalists for two national College Development Network awards, West Lothian College has been shortlisted again - this time as for The Herald and Genanalytics Diversity Awards.

The Diversity in the Public Sector category recognises the work of the college in creating an inclusive curriculum through its work on ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) with local communities and companies like the Dalmahoy Hotel and Country Club.

The college also made the shortlist in the Building Inclusive Communities category that recognises diversity across the college and its partnership work on mental health with Broxburn-based social enterprise, The Brock.

Jackie Galbraith, Principal of West Lothian College said:

“Being shortlisted in two categories at these national awards is well deserved recognition of the passion and commitment that staff and students at West Lothian College have for equality, diversity and inclusion. Activities like those being recognised nationally, demonstrate how well we are living our value of being welcoming to all people and communities.”

The Herald and GenAnalytics national Diversity Awards recognise the outstanding success of companies and organisations, individuals, third sector organisations and community groups who are demonstrating a strong commitment and track record of achievement in ensuring that everyone in our society has the opportunity to fulfil their ambitions, aspirations and potential.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony in Glasgow on Wednesday 9 October 2019.
