You should avoid discriminating when awarding, renewing or extending qualifications to your students, including any form of authorisation, approval or certification that you make.
A student who has undergone gender reassignment during the course of their time at the college notifies the college of their change of gender and change of name. The college then issues a course certificate with their old name. This would be unlawful gender reassignment discrimination.
You also have similar legal obligations towards disabled people who are not students at your institution when conferring qualifications on them.
A university liaises with the community college where a disabled person is studying on a course validated by the university, to ensure it does not discriminate against the disabled person when validating the qualification.
