We’re passionate about equality across our entire College, and we’re committed to supporting the diversity of our students, teachers, staff and visitors. We’re proud to support the LGBT+ community.
A safe and supportive environment
At Hugh Baird College, we’re committed to promoting and safeguarding all the characteristics of the Equality Act 2010.
Several of these are in respect to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Plus community. We do not tolerate any discrimination on the grounds of sex, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnerships, or gender reassignment.
We want Hugh Baird College to be a safe and supportive environment for every individual.
