Further Education and Equality: A Manager's Manual.
Commission for Racial Equality, London (England).; Equal Opportunities Commission, Cardiff (Wales).
This practical guide for colleges is designed to ensure sex and race equality in service delivery in further education in the United Kingdom. It is based on the approved framework for inspections in the further education sector. Following an introduction, chapter 2 outlines the laws against discrimination, and chapter 3 sums up the argument for equality of opportunity in further education. Chapter 4 provides a basic checklist of what an equal opportunities policy should cover, and chapter 5 suggests equality performance indicators that may be used to integrate equality assurance into the college's quality assurance procedures. The central section of the booklet follows the inspection guidelines published in "Assessing Achievement," published by the Further Education Funding Council. One column presents requirements from the Further Education Funding Council and the other column contains key questions for administrators about equal opportunity action. Practical guidance on dealing with racial and sexual harassment is given in an appendix. (SLD)
