Borders College has been awarded the LGBT Charter Mark from LGBT Youth Scotland in recognition of its high standard of support for young lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students.

Vice-principal David Killean said: “We are committed to a culture at the college that promotes equality and we believe our campuses are welcoming and safe for all people, allowing them to be themselves.”

The award was made last week at an event attended by students, staff, local councillors and members of the Scottish Borders LGBT Forum.
