Building Equality into the Curriculum Conference

This conference sets out some parameters for thinking about pedagogy and equality. It considers a range of challenges for practitioners in developing good practice to embed equality into the curriculum.

We aim to bring together sets of ideas and recommendations for embedding equality into teaching, learning, observation and support.

Aims of the Conference

This practical and interactive one day course will answer questions you might have about building equality into the curriculum within your organisation

The conference and the accompanying toolkit will examine what good equality, diversity and inclusion strategies in the classroom look like. We will highlight the need for all those working within Schools, Colleges and Work Based Learning organisations. Collges, Schools and Work Based Learning organisations not only provide and support training for good equitable strategies but they promote equality, diversity and inclusion though their own behaviour, observation of teaching and learning and their teaching and learning practice.

The conference will focus on the question of what needs to change and what needs to be done to achieve equality, diversity and inclusion in teaching, learning and curriculum development, design and delivery.
