This is the main finding of a report out at the end of June, aimed at encouraging UK Further Education College HE staff to improve their websites.
‘Further Education Colleges: Recruitment Equality for the 21st Century?’ is the second report published this year by Anne Tynan. This report was commissioned and sponsored by R21Education, the leading job board for Further Education colleges.
Although the report highlights examples of Excellence – 14% of colleges scored above 60% - there are also areas for concern. A staggering 91% of colleges did not provide easily available information on their websites about building/venue accessibility.
One of the author’s main conclusions is that organisations need to adapt more of a marketing mentality if they are to be successful in embedding and disseminating Equality and Diversity ideas, practices and information.
The report has been welcomed by the European Commission’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Team, as it is an example of a small business putting CSR into practice. It has also received an enthusiastic reception from the US Task Force on Health Care Careers for the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Community; it will be used as a resource by the Task Force access subcommittee.
If the HR departments of FE colleges are to promote Equality of Opportunity in Employment, they need to develop more of a marketing mentality.
This is the main finding of a report out this week, aimed at encouraging UK Further Education College HE staff to improve their websites.
