Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is used to describe how an organisation looks beyond their initial day to day business (students, staff; our customers) and acknowledge that their actions have a far reaching impact.  Undertaking a programme of CSR based activities encourages organisations to operate in a more sustainable, charitable and ethical way.

What is Salford City College doing?

Our college students, staff and governors take our social responsibilities seriously and view it as an essential part of our business.  As a large General Further Education College we have a key role in the social and economic welfare of Salford and an ethical responsibility to our environment.

Members of our management teams are also in governance roles in schools and trusteeships held by staff.

As part of the learner journey with us, students are encouraged to consider and reflect on their own social responsibility through the tutorial programme which covers citizenship and the themes of Every Child Matters (ECM); staying safe, being healthy, enjoying & achieving, economic well-being and a positive contribution.  Social responsibility underpins many activities and initiatives run through Learner Services and our Programme teams with fundraising activities for local and national charities throughout the year.

We are also committed to working with our employees to expand, develop and evaluate our sustainability programme to ensure this contributes to the efficiency of our college.  We deliver sessions to staff on sustainability to encourage changes to be made, at work and at home. Through our Health, Safety and Well-being Group we produce updates on our latest targets and achievements with an annual report provided to our Governors and Senior Managers.

Salford City College works also with local employers and businesses in a variety of ways to ensure we meet the training needs of these employers to maximise the employability of our students and supporting and developing Salford residents.
