Accrington and Rossendale College - Meeting the needs of LGB&T learners in Pennine Lancashire

Summary

This resource comprises the report and resources developed by the Equality and Diversity Partnership Project led by Accrington & Rossendale College.
The specific aim was to establish the most effective method to ensure that needs of young Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGB&T) learners in the local area are met by the college. The project provided the opportunity to better understand the needs of LGB&T learners and to maximise their participation and retention within the college.
A number of approaches were taken, including a needs analysis, funding a LGB&T youth social/support group, LGBT learner focus groups, an interactive website, an Equality Impact Assessment on relevant college services and activities and an online research questionnaire.
The resources included are the project report and a report of the research conducted.
