It really is a case of “fail to plan, plan to fail!” This section will focus on planning and actions teachers can take before a session that will help to effectively embed equality in the delivery.

E&D Top Tips

The following top tips are from Angela Stevenson:


  • Ensure all inappropriate behaviour is addressed and dealt with immediately.
  • Ask yourself "are your learners prepared to work in a multi-cultural and diverse society?" If not how can you prepare them?
  • Utilise tutorial sessions to promote issues around equality and diversity.
  • Give learners the opportunity to share their own views and discuss their own experiences.
  • Recognise and share learners' achievement. Ensure you show evidence of planning for Equality and Diversity
