Coleg Cambria is committed to the principles and practice of equality, diversity and human rights and to working with our communities and partners to ensure equal and inclusive learning for all our learners.
Us&Them is a two year Erasmus+ project aiming to train educators who are working with adults to promote tolerance and understanding of the ‘others’ in a multicultural world.
The Project will improve the multicultural skills of the educators from the field of Adult Education (AE) and will offer high quality learning opportunities for learners living in mixed communities. To create a multicultural and mixed group, the project is made up of 8 participating countries encompassing various traditions, cultures, religions, this way valorising experiences that belong to representative cultures: Christian, Muslims, Jewish, Hindu.
Us&Them project will strengthen education and training paths of AE educators and will help them develop a set of new skills and competences (especially soft skills in socio-cultural conflict management, multicultural skills development to adapt the learning environment to various cultures and backgrounds, skills on implementing positive attitudes toward language, race, cultural & ethnic diversity, skills on managing learners’ group diversity), needed to enable them to better manage and deal with their groups of adult learners in the field of living, working and getting integrated within nowadays multicultural societies/communities. The newly acquired competences will be used by AE educators to promote (among their learners) tolerance and understanding of “the other” in such communities.
As students and staff at Coleg Cambria we will:
- Reflect the diverse communities we serve
- Respect and celebrate the different backgrounds and cultures of all learners and staff
- Have zero tolerance of bullying and harassment
- Treat all learners and staff equally and fairly
- Ensure learning and college services are accessible to all
- Challenge Prejudice
Coleg Cambria welcomes all students and staff to endorse this charter and contribute to achieving the aims.

Our society is made up of a diverse collection of people with different stories, different lives, and different beliefs.
At Coleg Cambria we put diversity at our core.
We lay aside our differences and achieve success by working together and learning from each other, making us a truly vibrant and stimulating place to study and work.
Since our formation we have been committed to the principles and practice of equality, diversity and human rights to make an environment of equal and inclusive learning for all that pass through our doors.
Whilst our dreams might be different our goals are the same; university, careers, or just a desire to know more.
We all want to broaden our horizons in an environment that’s safe, fun and inclusive.
By celebrating diversity we strive to ensure that all backgrounds, cultures, religions and disabilities are educated in an environment of endless possibilities.

We challenge prejudice.
We stand up to bullying.

Coleg Cambria Promoting British Values
