In November 2021, Jeff Greenidge, Director of Diversity at the Education and Training Foundation (ETF), chaired the discussion ‘EDI and Safeguarding: what binds us together’ at the Association of Colleges (AoC) Annual Conference.
The discussion was led by Polly Harrow, Assistant Principal of Student Experiences at Kirklees College, and David Holloway, Senior Policy Manager of SEND at the AoC.
