10. Equal Opportunities

10.1 ACT 2 CAM operates an equal opportunities policy. All students are assessed as individuals and have equal access to the learning experience on our courses. Our selection process seeks to capture the wide diversity of potential creative talent in the industry and encourages applicants with the appropriate talent and ability whatever their background, ethnicity, origin, age, gender, class, sexual orientation, disability or religious or political beliefs.

10.2 We support the development of individuals who may be challenged by the demands of certain courses which we find is best accommodated by early notification of potential difficulties. We will always try and take reasonable and justifiable steps to accommodate the special needs in question, taking into account the student’s difficulties, practical capability, impact and potential disruption, cost implications, and other legal considerations. However the very nature of a course may make accessibility difficult for students with particular types of disability. Where this occurs we will endeavour to discuss this with you in advance whether you wish to attend certain aspects of a course where such challenges are reasonably and justifiably surmountable or agree an alternative solution which is satisfactory to both parties.

10.3 You agree to discuss any concerns you may have with us in advance of your child’s attendance on the course. This may include known conditions, any extra provision undertaken in school, any counselling, any medication or any other concerns you may have.

10.4 If you do not notify us in advance, we may not be able to structure the support necessary for your child. Failure to declare known concerns or conditions, which might impact upon your child's ability to progress through the programme, may result in your child's exclusion from the course.

10.5 We have designed our courses to deliver appropriate learning across a range of disciplines. Although we will take reasonable steps to warn students of the content of potentially distressing course material, we make no apology for such course material as we believe the material in question is an important part of the learning experience.
