Promoting Personal Development
At Oldham College we are committed to promoting personal development through our informal learning and enrichment programme alongside the students’ chosen curriculum area.
Through this programme we actively promote and encourage students to explore their own spiritual, moral, social and cultural experiences, educating them in these areas and the experiences of others. We work closely with students to ensure that they have a good understanding; that while we may hold different views as individuals we are accountable to our own organisation policies and procedures and in a wider context English law.
