What is equality

What is equality?

  • Equality is about the rights of learners to have access to, attend, and participate in their chosen learning experience

  • This should be regardless of their circumstances

  • Inequality and discrimination should be tackled to ensure fairness, decency and respect amongst all learners


Promoting equality and valuing diversity

  • In the past, equality has often been described as everyone being the same or having the same opportunities

  • Nowadays, it can be described as everyone being different, but having equal rights

  • Equality of opportunity is a concept underpinned by legislation


Equality act 2010

Equality Act (2010)

  • The Equality Act (2010) replaced all previous anti-discrimination legislation

    and consolidated it into one act for England, Scotland and Wales

  • There are separate requirements in Northern Ireland


Promoting equality and valuing diversity

  • The Act provides rights for people not to be directly discriminated against or harassed because they have an association with a disabled person, nor must people be directly discriminated against or harassed because they are wrongly perceived as disabled

  • Reasonable adjustments must take place during teaching and learning activities to lessen or remove the effects of a disadvantage to a learner with a disability


Promoting equality and valuing diversity

Protected Characteristics

  • The Act identified nine protected characteristics

  • A protected characteristic refers to aspects of a person’s identity which are explicitly protected from discrimination
