This week is #UnitedandProud week at Hull College, which will see both students and staff highlighting and celebrating the importance of British Values.
The government set out their definition of British Values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy. In 2014, the Department of Education published guidance on promoting these values in schools and colleges to ensure young people leave education better prepared for life in modern Britain, allowing them to become well-rounded members of the local and wider community.
Everyone at the college is dedicated to embedding these values in everything we do with our students to help them develop a strong sense of social and moral responsibility. Students are prepared for life in modern Britain by developing an understanding of:
How we can influence decision making through democratic processes such as the national electoral system, local elections or our own Students’ Union elections.
The Rule of Law
The rule of law, in its most basic form, is the principle that no one is above the law and that the law applies equally to us all, rulers and ruled alike. We are law abiding citizens and we are all accountable to the laws of our society.
We understand and exercise our human rights in a safe environment. Students are supported and encouraged to make informed choices about their future progression pathways.
Mutual Respect and Tolerance
We promote the importance of mutual respect through our shared ‘Acceptable Standards’ of behaviour and we actively promote diversity and accept that people have different faiths or beliefs.
