‘We enjoyed working with you on the Business case for Diversity project and you were always enthusiastic (and reliable!).’
Short term inspection preparation
Ofsted inspectors look for a more pro-active approach to equality and diversity. They examine all aspects of the curriculum and the way your organisation works positively to avoid all unfair discrimination – not just illegal discrimination. Inspection can be stressful and disruptive but also provide useful direction and advice on quality improvement. Expecting an Inspection soon and worried about one particular area? – We can help you prepare for the event by carrying out a supportive pre-inspection audit.
Long term quality improvement
SEQUALS is available to carry out an equality audit of your Self Assessment Review and Equality Action Plans. We work with the whole organisation or focus on a particular section and arrange relevant CPD Training courses in response to issues raised.
