Equality is Quality
You can’t have a quality provision without embedding equality.
Join us as we explore the importance of equality in a quality provision
If you are looking to build an outstanding provision (and who isn’t?), you need to ensure every learner receives the same high quality experience and an equal opportunity of success.
We’re not the only ones who think this.
With the release of the Education Inspection Framework in 2019, Ofsted very clearly highlighted the importance of providing a high quality provision for all learners:
“The quality of provision for learners with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) is also always considered on inspection.” (Ofsted, 2019)
At Cognassist, we have always said that with the right support, learners who might typically struggle in education can go on to achieve alongside their peers.
It’s vital that providers take active steps to level up learner support throughout the entire learning journey to make this a reality. It takes commitment from organisations to embed equality into the foundation of their provision, but we must be doing everything we can to ensure all learners receive the right support.
But how can you be sure you’re identifying all learners who would benefit from support?
English and Maths skills assessments?
These approaches don’t do enough for learners.
Initial assessment to identify cognitive learning needs is a simple step your organisation can take to embed equality and inclusion within your organisation.
This whitepaper dives into some of the key reasons why initial assessment helps your organisation and learners to achieve the top levels of success.
