Equality and diversity conference

We ran a major conference in 2011 to share our expertise on equality and diversity with our colleagues across the education sector.

The Learning and Skills Improvement Service (LSIS) partnered with us to deliver an event which drew out best practice for embedding equality and diversity within the curriculum and across a college.

The event, held at our Ardleigh Green Campus, attracted delegates from more than 30 educational institutions who took part in discussions and small workshops.

Workshops focussed on Havering College’s successful implementation of equality and diversity across its induction programme, tutorial sessions, support services and vocational courses. Another workshop looked at narrowing gaps in achievement.

One attendee commented: "Excellent – time to go away and try our own implementation of some of these fantastic ideas."

Another delegate said: "A very useful session. Very grateful for the openness and honesty of organisers, speakers and attendees for sharing best practice and allowing us to benefit and learn from all your hard work."
