    Promoting British values – what key challenges remain?

    Equality, diversity and British values continue to feature highly in the April 2018 inspection handbook update. Many organisations have made good progress in integrating and promoting Equality, diversity and British values to help prepare learners as responsible citizens in society. But inspection outcomes show that there are still key challenges for colleges and workplace learning providers. Do you know what these are? And more importantly, what are you doing about them?
