Equality of Opportunity

The College’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion policy demonstrates that the College will seek to remove any existing barriers to all staff, students, governors and visitors, irrespective of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage or civil partnerships, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation. Callywith College endeavours to promote an inclusive working and learning environment, which supports the individuals within its community irrespective of their background. The College aims to promote equality of opportunity by providing full and equal access to all students who can benefit from its provision, and by encouraging and enabling all members of the College to build and contribute to a society that values cultural and social diversity. A focus on learner voice and involvement in instigating change reflects this commitment.

Student Life

Callywith College has very few rules, but both you as a student and all College staff work to ensure everyone has the most positive and beneficial experience possible.

Before you become a student at Callywith College we aim to provide you with information about the courses we offer and the practicalities of being a student here. We will let you know about transport, finance, equipment and progression. If you have any additional needs we will give you details of the individually tailored support you can expect at Callywith College.

Once you apply, you can expect us to process your application fairly and efficiently and, normally within four weeks of receipt of your application form, provide you with a date and time for an interview. The interview is a good opportunity for both you and the College to ensure you are choosing a course that is right for you and you have all the information you need. After your interview, a decision about a place at Callywith College can usually be made.

When you start as a Callywith College student we will give you a thorough induction. You will receive a lot of new information including details on learning resources, dates, security, health and safety, safeguarding, attendance, assignments and College rules, procedures and policies. You will also be given a student handbook which will give you a record of all the information for you to refer back to.

As a student at Callywith College you will accept more responsibility for your work and your progress than during your time at school. Many courses require you to work extensively on your own in College and at home. First-class study facilities are available in the College and successful students use these effectively. We will help you to organise your work, but you will be responsible for ensuring that you meet deadlines. The College requires that you attend regularly and punctually, and that you meet the demands of your course. We hope that you will enjoy your time at Callywith College and the staff at the College will work with you to help you achieve success.
