    Close-up portrait of Christine Rose

    Christine is widely regarded as one of the leading authorities in equality, diversity and inclusion for the education sector.

    Her work with organisations such as Ofsted and the Equality and Human Rights Commission and her knowledge of sector practice has led her to develop and publish an extensive range of national guidance publications, briefings and toolkits.


    E&D Publications

    Christine has published an extensive range of E&D publications. Here are three

    Integrating Equality, Diversity and Inclusion into the learning experience


    ‘Christine’s help was invaluable in helping us to identify ways we could further improve our practice at the College. Plotting through the learners journey from admission all the way through into the classroom, led us to amend policy, practice and staff development and to really embed E&D into our teaching and learning.’
    June Morrow, Director, Walsall College
