Full Time and Part Time Adult Skills Learners - Diversity (2018-19 Year-End)

Impact on Diversity and Inclusion



Learning difficulty or disability

In 2018/19 slightly more females engaged with learning. The ethnicity profile shows our adult learners as a group are increasingly more diverse than the local community. 45.6% of our learners are from minority groups who make up 11.9% of the local population. There are no significant achievement gaps based on gender or ethnicity for adult learners.

The college was pleased to support some 690 adult learners with learning difficulties or disabilities in 2018/19, through a wide range of support services. This year adults declaring a learning difficulty or disability achieved at a slightly better rate than those who did not declare a learning difficulty or disability (+1.3%).
