Improving quality

Our approach is developmental. As a critical friend we work with you to make sure your service is fairer, more inclusive and more effective.

‘We enjoyed working with you on the Business case for Diversity project and you were always enthusiastic (and reliable!).’
Sue Newton-Brown

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.

Research

‘Re the research project on Volunteer tutors. Thank you. You were always willing to go one step further in terms of fulfilling the brief.’
Denise Robinson, Director of the Consortium for PCET at University of Huddersfield

SEQUALS produces research reports and good practice guides on current issues for teacher education in the learning and skills sector.

Supporting CPD

Research projects can form part the Continuing Professional Development portfolios of managers and teaching staff.  Do you have an in-house research project in mind that could improve inclusion and diversity? Or an issue you would like to investigate further with the aim of improving teaching and learning – SEQUALS can support and advise staff undertaking this research.
