Follow-up activities and support

You will come away with a clearer understanding of the Equality Act and your school’s legal responsibility for promoting equality, tackling discrimination and fostering positive relations.

By introducing a whole school Equality Code, your staff will gain increased confidence in how to tackle prejudice and discrimination in a positive and assertive manner whilst empowering students to do the same. They will have the strategies and tools to weave inclusive practice into everything they do, from planning, resourcing and delivering learning to monitoring, reporting and embedding inclusive practice throughout the culture of the school.

Our courses are always hands-on and interactive with plenty of time for discussions, debates and Q and A. Bring along an inquisitive mind and leave overflowing with new knowledge and ideas to embed inclusive practice in your school.

The resources includes a pen drive including whole staff inset with accompanying training booklet, an introductory PowerPoint for students (primary and secondary versions) and 10 A3 Equality Code posters.
