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. However, a quick search of the word in a dictionary suggests ‘a state of being equal’ and uses language such as fairness, equitability, uniformity and even-handedness. I have been reflecting about what equality means for partnership working.

Recipe for Success: The e-resource

When the team at Hackney Community College won the Association of Colleges Beacon Award (2010) for Widening Participation for its work  with students with mental health problems they decided to share their award with the sector by  commissioning a guide to effective practice.

'Recipe for Success' is the result. It is a collection of 'recipes' gathered together from 6  general further education (FE) colleges with established  provision to support  students (and staff) in FE  who have experience of mental health problems.
