Unsure what course to study?

You just need to answer three simple questions about your study preferences, interests and predicted grades and we can suggest courses that might suit you.

  • 1 Study type
  • 2 Your Interests
  • 3 Your Grades
Question 1

How would you prefer to study?

Question 2

What are your interests?

Question 3

What grades have you achieved or are predicted?

These results are a suggestion of courses you may want to explore but are by no means a definitive list and individual entry requirements do apply.

5 Ways to Welbeing Poster A2 2020

5 Ways to Wellbeing

Stam­ford Col­lege are proud to work in part­ner­ship with Mind­space and pro­mote the 5 ways to well­be­ing to improve the men­tal well­be­ing of the whole col­lege community.

British Val­ues

At Stam­ford Col­lege we pro­mote val­ues which ensure that our stu­dents devel­op a strong sense of social and moral responsibility.

We pre­pare stu­dents for life in mod­ern Britain and aim to embed key val­ues with­in the cur­ricu­lum and ethos at Stam­ford Col­lege. Val­ues such as:

  • indi­vid­ual liberty
  • democ­ra­cy
  • the law
  • mutu­al respect and tolerance

Our cur­ricu­lum is broad and bal­anced, com­plies with leg­is­la­tion and pro­vides a wide range of sub­jects which pre­pare stu­dents for the oppor­tu­ni­ties, respon­si­bil­i­ties and expe­ri­ences of life in mod­ern Britain.

It active­ly pro­motes fun­da­men­tal British val­ues and it extends beyond the class­room with a wide range of tuto­ri­als, vis­its, guest speak­ers and expe­ri­ences. It pro­motes tol­er­ance and respect for peo­ple of all faiths (or none), cul­tures and lifestyles through effec­tive spir­i­tu­al, moral, social and cul­tur­al devel­op­ment of stu­dents, includ­ing engag­ing stu­dents in extracur­ric­u­lar activ­i­ty, vol­un­teer­ing in the local com­mu­ni­ty, fundrais­ing, work expe­ri­ence and live project briefs.

Equal­i­ty and Diversity

Equal­i­ty Objectives:

The Col­lege mon­i­tors data in respect of learn­ers and staff on a reg­u­lar basis and has these five key objec­tives for improve­ment over the next four years. Mea­sures are linked to each of the key objectives.

  1. Advance the course take-up by under-rep­re­sent­ed gen­ders in iden­ti­fied cur­ricu­lum areas.
  2. Strive to elim­i­nate any dif­fer­en­tial in stu­dents’ attain­ment accord­ing to race, gen­der or disability.
  3. Address the under-rep­re­sen­ta­tion of Black and Minor­i­ty Eth­nic (BME) peo­ple in the staff and gov­ern­ing body to reflect the pop­u­la­tion we serve.
  4. Fos­ter a cul­ture of dig­ni­ty and respect between dif­fer­ent groups of peo­ple by rais­ing aware­ness of diver­si­ty in Teach­ing, Learn­ing and Assessment.
  5. Enhance the gath­er­ing of data on sex­u­al ori­en­ta­tion, trans­gen­der sta­tus, faith and belief (of staff and stu­dents) in order to ensure that we meet their needs in College.

Sin­gle Equal­i­ty Scheme

The Col­lege has a Sin­gle Equal­i­ty Scheme which includes the annu­al mon­i­tor­ing sta­tis­tics, details of the Equal­i­ty Impact Assess­ment Process and the Cur­rent Equal­i­ty Rolling Action Plan.

Equal­i­ty and Diver­si­ty Work­force Profile

We not only recog­nise the impor­tance of, but immense­ly val­ue the ben­e­fits of a diverse work­force and under­stand that an inclu­sive cul­ture means we can offer a wide range of ideas, ener­gies, skills, expe­ri­ence and resources to improve teach­ing and learn­ing for our com­mu­ni­ty and beyond. 

The Equal­i­ty Act 2010 and the Pub­lic Sec­tor Equal­i­ty Duty requires all pub­lic author­i­ties to pub­lish equal­i­ty infor­ma­tion on their work­force to demon­strate that they are com­pli­ant and trans­par­ent in their practices.

Equal­i­ty and Diver­si­ty Work­force Profile

Pre­vent

All schools, col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties have a legal duty to edu­cate stu­dents about extrem­ist behav­iour and to report any con­cerns about stu­dents who may be at risk of radicalisation.

This could (but is not lim­it­ed to) include the following:

  • Engag­ing with fun­da­men­tal­ists or their ideals (ISIL, Al-Qai­da, far right groups, etc)
  • Extreme polit­i­cal views (white suprema­cy, anti-Semi­tism, etc)
  • Vis­its to coun­tries deemed high risk by the UK government
  • Access­ing web­sites / social media linked to extrem­ist organisations
  • Views or behav­iour that are con­trary to British Values

Recog­nis­ing Signs of radicalisation:

The fol­low­ing could describe gen­er­al teenage behav­iour, how­ev­er, togeth­er with oth­er signs may mean a young per­son is being radicalised:

  • out of char­ac­ter changes in dress, behav­iour and changes in their friend­ship group
  • los­ing inter­est in pre­vi­ous activ­i­ties and friendships
  • secre­tive behav­iour and switch­ing screens when you come near

The fol­low­ing signs are more spe­cif­ic to radicalisation:

  • own­ing mobile phones or devices they can­not account for
  • show­ing sym­pa­thy for extrem­ist causes
  • advo­cat­ing extrem­ist messages
  • glo­ri­fy­ing violence
  • access­ing extrem­ist lit­er­a­ture and imagery
  • show­ing a mis­trust of main­stream media reports and belief in con­spir­a­cy theories
  • appear­ing angry about gov­ern­men­tal poli­cies, espe­cial­ly for­eign policy

Mem­bers of staff have a legal duty to report any con­cerns, how­ev­er minor, to the Safe­guard­ing Team.
