Equality Action Planning Framework
During 2007 the Further Education Support Service (FESS) delivered an extremely well received programme of seminars on the theme of equality in further Education.
To further support providers in this area, in 2009 the FESS decided to establish an Equality Task Group. Through the workings of this task group resources have been developed and are now available to support Department of Education and Skills (DES) funded FE providers in implementing their current quality assurance policy on equality and its related procedures.
