Access & Participation Statement
Our students are at the heart of everything we do at LFA and we have always remained true to our values of being inclusive, diverse, and supportive of people from all walks of life. The film industry is already hard enough to get into, and we have always made it part of our school’s remit to take active steps towards fostering participation and encouraging access for under-represented and disadvantaged students. LFA continues to support diverse education and actively strives to deliver the highest quality in our courses to students of all backgrounds.
We have an excellent representation of mixed ethnicities and are continuing to work towards equal gender representation.
Our Access and Participation Statement has been accepted as part of our registration conditions by the OfS.
LFA Inclusion Plans
The aim of an Inclusion Plan is to facilitate the most rewarding and productive learning experience for you. This policy is also a great way to inform potential applicants or enrolled students with Protected Characteristics (defined by the Equality Act, are disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership and pregnancy and maternity) what they can expect once they have declared their needs.
