Equality in colleges in Scotland: detailed analysis of staff experiences
An analysis of the qualitative data of disabled staff experiences
In 2018, the Equality Challenge Unit (ECU) conducted the first Scotland-wide research of college staff on their experiences working in the sector analysed by protected characteristics. The research report Equality in colleges in Scotland: results from the 2017 staff survey and focus groups highlighted disabled staff and in particular their perceived poorer experiences across aspects of employment than non-disabled staff.
As a result of these notable findings, further analysis of the qualitative data was conducted which is presented in this report.
Two further detailed reports will be published in the coming months highlighting other notable areas of staff experiences in Scottish colleges.
