We recognise that valuing and embracing diversity is key to providing high quality teaching and learning.

The College takes pride in serving the local communities of Canterbury and East Kent and is fully committed to promoting equality of opportunity, access, dignity and fairness, both in the services it provides and in its range of progressive employment practices.

We have an extensive support system for our learners, provided by our Students Services team who are based across our two campuses. For more details, please look at our Student Info section.

We value diversity and see education as an opportunity to share different experiences. Whilst you are at Canterbury College you will be treated with respect. In line with our equality and diversity policy it is expected that you will treat all the members of the College community with respect. At Canterbury College we have a positive commitment to improving learning opportunities for everyone.

Our Mission Statement:

"To be the best at Teaching & Learning"

Our core values:

  • Equality of opportunity
  • Raising of standards
  • Responsiveness and flexibility to the needs of our learners
  • Treating each other with respect
  • Being purposeful in what we do

These values represent an affirmation of behaviours that we believe in and which should help guide us in all our dealings.  Underpinning these values is a recognition that our stakeholders are a diverse group with diverse needs.  Also fundamental is our commitment to promote positive outcomes for our stakeholders, removing barriers that could impede this.
