Equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) and safeguarding – what binds us together

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.

In this follow-up question and answer session, Polly, David and Jeff come together to share some of the conference’s highlights and discuss key topics from the day, including: the importance of data when it comes to identifying disparities in the support offered to learners; unconscious bias in the Further Education (FE) sector; and the importance of safeguarding in relation to Equity, Diversion and Inclusion (EDI).
