Equal Partners?

‘Equality’ is an interesting term and it means different things to different people. It is often used in the ‘Equality and Diversity’ context. In which case, equality is not about treating everyone the same, but about putting people in a position where they have the same opportunities.

Building confidence and a sense of well-being is increasingly being seen as a means of enabling learners to make the most of their potential and to participate more fully in society. But how do you it?

Discovering potential is a resource pack that supports practitioners and managers who work with adults with low self-esteem. It looks at:

Workforce equality in the North East: A resource pack to support the recruitment of people with experience of mental health conditions into further education

The development of this resource was funded by the LSC North East Equality and Diversity team. it comprises short activity based units and aims to improve the employment opportunities of people with mental health conditions in the region. It is designed for those with strategic responsibility for equality and diversity within the post-16 sector in the North East, including equality and diversity managers, HR directors, line managers and union representatives.

Working Well

We can support our learners most effectively and be positive role models if we look after our own mental health. The pack is about maintaining mental health as well as supporting those staff that have mental health difficulties. This  resource aims to raise awareness of issues and supports employers so they can develop good practice.
