Explain ways to promote equality and value diversity

Equality and diversity can be endorsed by identifying the boundaries students may have. By identifying these potential barriers it will benefit the learning experience of an individual and as a group, and help overcome those boundaries a student may have. Teaching has to be structured to meet individual learner’s needs, using different strategies to promote comprehensive learning.

In terms of Diversity, all the factors like gender, race, age, religion and other social needs have to be taken into account. All learners should be given equal rights to participate in all activities of learning regardless of age, sex, religion and race.

Equality is making sure that every student is treated in the same way and their needs are met in different ways. All learners are entitled to education according their needs, regardless of any difference.
  * A teacher has to be aware of the different learning styles of each student and be patient, listen and help learners overcome their learning difficulties. Learning challenges should be set appropriate to different pupils, promoting equality through different teaching methods. Discrimination, bullying and other issues have to be addressed. Good behaviour has to be managed and accesses to additional resources have to be available for learners with disabilities or difficulties.

Diversity is valuing individual differences, regardless of age, sex, religion, race, nationality.
  * A teacher has to recognise the differences and also the reality that all students do not learn in the same way. Teaching a diverse group of students needs monitoring student progress, and responding to student input. The cultural backgrounds, interpersonal relationships, sociability and expectations of every learner have to be taken into account, as each individual brings with them diverse perspectives, work experiences, life styles and cultures.
