THE Isle of Wight College has been awarded a £4,800 grant to boost equality and diversity projects.

The award comes from the Equality and Diversity Project Fund, a partnership project between the Learning and Skills Improvement Service and the Skills Funding Agency.

The grant will be used to provide work experience for students with disabilities and learning difficulties.

Head of workforce development at the college, Janet Stevens, said: "This is a great opportunity to give people with disabilities and learning difficulties the chance to gain worthwhile work experience, and will help remove some of the barriers preventing them from being in the workplace."

Well said Mr.McComb, but IF she is WHITE then that surely is its only plus sign, there is NO equality for men, especially WHITE hetrosexual men, the silent Majority are now governed by the minorities, this SCAM is another way to get genuine disabled people off benefits and into slave work,so much for democracy whereby the Majority decides policies, it is in reverse now.
