Design, Planning and Delivery of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in Teaching and Learning

This guide has been developed as a practical toolkit to help practitioners improve their practice and meet their legal and professional obligations by designing, planning and delivering teaching, learning and assessment activities that engage learners.

It will prepare them for external assessment and also promote equality, support diversity and tackle discrimination, victimisation, harassment, stereotyping and bullying.

The information in the guide is supplemented by a range of activities to help you test your understanding and apply your learning to the classroom, tutorial or induction process.

Many of the activities will kick start the preliminary thinking, planning and awareness raising processes you will need to embed equality and diversity into your area of work.
