Equality Schemes

Public Consultation Review of EA Equality Scheme

The Education Authority has reviewed our Equality Scheme. 
We propose to amend our Equality Scheme to achieve the following outcomes:

  • The format of the scheme has been amended, to make it more user friendly and more accessible.
  • We have strengthened our commitments around consultation and engagement, to place the voice of children and young people, and our stakeholders, at the centre of our decision making.
  • We have made the process around when we use our ‘screening’ tools clearer and ensured that equality assessments add real value to our decision making. 

We are now seeking views on this and would welcome you taking the time to respond to this consultation exercise. 
The consultation runs from 18 October 2021 until 5pm on 14 January 2022.
We will be hosting two virtual engagement events on:

  • Thursday 28 October 2.00pm – 4.30pm
  • Tuesday 30 November 10.00am – 12.30pm

To register, please contact equality.unit@eani.or.uk indicating your preferred date. We are also able to facilitate one to one meetings if none of the above dates are suitable.
Thank you for taking time to consider the consultation, please send your response to equality.unit@eani.org.uk before the closing date. For any further information, please contact equality.unit@eani.org.uk
