External Speakers Policy

The purpose of this policy is to demonstrate the College’s determination to ensure that all students can enjoy a student life free from bullying of any kind physical or emotional via direct or distant (cyber bullying) interface.

East Durham College is committed to creating an environment where everyone is treated with dignity and respect and where diversity is valued.

This policy outlines the procedures relating to events involving the use of external speakers regardless of who is organising them. It also details our approach to ensuring that we are protecting both staff and students and the reputation of East Durham College whilst following the legislation that we’re responsible for upholding. This policy is written with reference to the Prevent Duty contained within Section 26 of the Counter Terrorism and Security Act 2015. The Duty states that specified authorities including Further Education Colleges, in the exercise of their functions, must have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”.
