Equality and diversity
Equality is about creating a fairer society where everyone has the opportunity to fulfil their potential. Diversity is about recognising and valuing difference in its broadest sense
NHS Education for Scotland is committed to the principles of eliminating discrimination and harassment, promoting equality of opportunity for all and recognising and valuing diversity in employment and in the delivery of our services. We recognise the value of a diverse NHSScotland workforce and the need to promote an inclusive approach to educational and workforce development. We see good equality and diversity practice as central to achieving our vision of 'quality education for a healthier Scotland'.
