Proud to be part of

As a higher education institute, we’re here to make a difference.

Our goal is to make higher education an inclusive and open space, offering all people, from all backgrounds, the opportunity to define and pursue success through education. Whether that means enrolling with us as a student, or working with us as a member of staff, no one should ever feel disadvantaged or dismissed.

That’s why we’re continually building relationships and collaborating with like-minded organisations to knock down the barriers keeping people out. See more about what we’ve been up to below and keep an eye out for future projects.

 

At Bloomsbury Institute your potential to succeed, not your past, is what defines your future.

With the help of Unlock, we became the first higher education institute to Ban the Box for both staff and students, no longer asking anyone who wants to study or work with us to disclose past criminal convictions. Read more on our blog.

 

We are an Armed Forces friendly organisation and we are committed to providing veterans and their families with the same access to higher education as any other citizen.

We actively encourage and support those entering higher education, and continue this support throughout and after their studies . Find out what we’ve pledged in our covenant.

 

In the workplace 

We are committed to equality through all that we do, starting within the workplace.

As an employer we not only treat all employees fairly, but we are dedicated to building and instilling a culture that is open and inclusive. We believe this is what makes Bloomsbury Institute so diverse.

 

Our inclusive recruitment practices are recognised by Disability Confident and we constantly improve how we attract and recruit disabled workers.

 

As a Stone Wall Diversity Champion, we ensure all LGBT staff are accepted without exception in the workplace.  All staff should have the freedom to be themselves, always.

 

And we believe our staff should be paid a salary that meets the costs of living. We pay the London Living Wage inside of the National Minimum Wage.
