This self-evaluation framework offers institutions, departments/services and individuals a tool by which < Back
to reflect upon the extent to which equality and diversity has been embedded in the design and delivery
of the curriculum as well as identify future priorities.

times has a number of repercussions for learning and teaching. The higher and further education
sectors aspire to enable all students to develop academically, professionally and personally, to

The framework has been written by the Higher Education Academy, in collaboration with
Scotland Colleges, as part of a programme of work funded by the Scottish Funding Council.
