Health and safety practices and ethical considerations are consistently embedded within the programme. The programme also aims to improve a graduate's "ability to adapt" and "work readiness skills" (Shadbolt, 2016, recommendations 3 and 4) through a unified problem solving approach to delivery and assessment within the programme. Our local supporting organisations acknowledge that these are key factors within their recruitment and selection processes (Shadbolt, 2016, recommendation 10).

A variety of methods will be used such as lectures, seminars, case studies, group activity and discussion and practical workshops. Integrating a work-based or placement opportunity, students will be visited in the workplace by a member of Institute staff to ensure a positive partnership between the employer mentor and to monitor that learning in the workplace is effective. Workplace learning is designed to support the development of an employable graduate equipped with the attributes, skills and knowledge to progress within a global market.

Equality & Diversity

All of our activities in relation to teaching, safeguarding, training, recruitment, retention and progression are core business areas where we must be mindful of the diverse needs of those we work with. Although the law no longer requires public sector organisations to produce equality schemes, the Grimsby Institute Group has produced an Equality Statement, which is more than mere words, but a statement of our intent.

This statement underpinned by declarations from the leaders of the Grimsby Institute Group include many actions we believe will proactively eliminate all forms of discrimination where they exist and prevent them from occurring in the first instance.

Equality Intent turning into equality action is the future ethos and philosophy of the Grimsby Institute Group and as the principal lead for Equality, Diversity Inclusion & Human Rights the Grimsby Institute Group will demonstrate this commitment in all that they do.
