NCLT ranked in top 20 nationally for equality and diversity for second year

The New Collaborative Learning Trust, the multi-academy trust that runs New College Pontefract, New College Doncaster and New College Bradford, has been ranked as one of the top 20 institutions in the country for equality and diversity for the second year running.

“We are delighted to once again be placed in the Top 20 of the National Centre for Diversity’s Top 100 Index,” said Lauren Walker, Director of Human Resources for New Collaborative Learning Trust.

The National Centre for Diversity is a campaigning organisation that seeks to advance equality, diversity and inclusion across a wide range of public, private and third sector organisations. Its annual top 100, like the Sunday Times “rich list”, is designed to throw a spotlight on best practice. The New Collaborative Learning Trust’s track-record of success in the list illustrates the trust’s long-term commitment to issues around inclusion and diversity.

“Our success demonstrates our continued commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion for all,” said Lauren, “and recognises the hard work of our staff and students in creating such a positive environment of mutual respect and fairness.”
