Equality & Diversity

“It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.”

LGBTQ+ support
gender diversity

How do you want to be known?: Learners at Brooklands College are able to manage their title, preferred name, pronouns, gender identity and sexuality.  They will be able to select from a list of gendered and gender neutral titles, update their preferred name and pronouns.  This data will be held in the strictest of confidence; it will be used to compare retention and achievement with the wider college community to ensure nobody is held back by our practices.

We are always looking to give our students a well-rounded and fulfilling learning experience while preparing to head out on their career journeys. In order to support this, we have several students led groups that all enrolled Brooklands students are welcome to take part in.

  • LGBTQ+ Group: There is a lunchtime group that meets every Wednesday lunchtime this academic year.
  • Student Union: Student Unions facilitate and organise student activities such as clubs, socials, peer support and volunteering. They also debate, lobby and campaign on behalf of the students they represent. They provide an insight into the college wide issues that affect the learner journey.
  • Sustainable Development Group: This group will focus on delivering the College commitment to sustainable development and reducing our carbon emissions and our impact on the environment.

Pride in Surrey

We are thrilled to announce that we have reserved our stall at Pride In Surrey this year supporting the LGBTQ+ community! Save the date: Saturday 21st September, Stoke Park, Guildford.

Brooklands College values diversity and strives to create a welcoming community in which all individuals are respected and included. The entire Brooklands community, staff and students alike, are called upon to play a role in our ensuring our commitment to diversity and inclusion is a reality. We support respectful and meaningful inquiry across differences, including; ability, age, appearance, ethnicity, family/marital status, gender, gender expression, immigration status, language, nationality, political ideology, race, religion, sexuality, socio-economic status, and other personal identities and experiences. The working environment is changing, becoming more interconnected and interdependent; it is paramount that our learners are equipped to thrive in this environment. The ability to include, communicate, cooperate, and collaborate with diverse individuals is important. We therefore engage in dialogue around issues of difference, identity, and ideology in the classroom and throughout campus. Through embracing diversity, our views are widened and our community strengthened.
