The Equality and Human Rights Commission's guide for Education Providers

This guide is one of a series written by the Equality and Human Rights Commission to explain what you must do to meet the requirements of equality law. These guides will support the introduction of the Equality Act 2010. This Act brings together lots of different equality laws, many of which we have had for a long time. By doing this, the Act makes equality law simpler and easier to understand.

There are two guides giving advice on your responsibilities under equality law as someone who has pupils, students and parents who access the education services you provide.

Other guides and alternative formats

We have also produced guides, which explain what equality law means for individual people who are using services, or working and who want to know their rights to equality. If you require this guide in an alternative format and/or language please contact the relevant helpline to discuss your needs.
