How to use this self-evaluation approach to improve practice

This guidance should inform the review of policies in relation to promoting equality and diversity and eliminating discrimination. It can support an audit of current practice and identify areas for improvement.

Challenge questions which may be helpful for further education providers include:

  • How well do we ensure that all staff undertake regular professional learning around legislation, statutory requirements and codes of practice?
  • How well does our curriculum promote equality and diversity and eliminate discrimination?

The guidance includes details on:

  • Who is protected;
  • What is discrimination/harassment/victimisation;
  • What else is unlawful under the act?;
  • Positive Action;
  • Public sector equality duty and the Human Rights Act.
