As a higher education provider, we will continue to demonstrate how we meet the requirements of the Equality Act, known as The Public Equality Duty. The public equality duties consist of a general duty and further specific duties. The general duty takes the form of broad equality requirements. The specific duties outline how we as a public body is required to go about achieving the general duty. Taken together the Public Equality Duty requires us to be proactive in approach.

The General Equality Duty requires us to demonstrate how we ensure due regard to: 

  • Eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation in relation to the characteristics highlighted within the strategy statement.
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a characteristic and those who do not. 
  • Foster good relations between people who share a characteristic and those who do not.
