Corporate Social Responsibility
What we are doing
The students, staff and Governors of South Tyneside College take our social responsibilities very seriously and see this as an essential part of our business. As a medium sized mixed economy college and an employer, we have a major role to play in the social and economic welfare of the borough of South Tyneside and the wider region, our international community and an ethical responsibility to our planet by taking a positive action.
As part of the College experience, students are encouraged to consider their own social responsibility through the tutorial programme which covers the five themes of Every Child Matters (being healthy, staying safe, enjoying and achieving, making a positive contribution and economic well-being). Social responsibility also underpins many of the activities supported by the many equality and diversity initiatives both within the College and within the wider community.
The College is wholly committed to working positively to expand, develop and evaluate our sustainability programme which is developed by our cross college sustainability task group. The Group makes sure that it contributes to the efficacy of the College, as well as being worthwhile. We believe in educating staff as well as students about sustainable issues to help encourage a behavioural change and enable individuals to make an informed choice.
