Equality and diversity in education

Equality and diversity in education


It’s important children learn from the earliest age to value differences between people and to have tolerance for the values, beliefs, and views of others. Educators play a vital role in this process and have a legal duty to promote equality within learning environments and to the children and young people in their care. Learn about legislation and codes of practice relating to equality, diversity, and discrimination. Know how to work in an inclusive way and respect the culture and beliefs of others.
