Equality and Diversity in Further Education Paperback
by Sheine Peart
Edited by Susan Wallace
Part of the Further Education series
Further Education is the most diverse of all the education sectors.
Managing diversity and promoting equality, a legislative requirement of the 2010 Equalities Act, brings significant challenges for practitioners who are tasked with making the rhetoric of politicians a reality, often with little guidance and few resources.
This book provides practical guidance for existing lecturers and trainee teachers, explaining how they can overcome these challenges and establish a positive learning environment to meet the needs of all learners. This accessible and up to date book extends the scope of the diversity and inclusion debate to consider a wide range of issues including age, working with cross-cultural groups, promoting effective gender relations, sexual orientation and working with current and ex-offenders.
Each chapter includes clear objectives, case studies, critical thinking tasks, chapter reflections and a learning review audit.
