GCIL Equality Academy addresses the under-representation of
disabled people in professional level employment in Scotland. We
also work with organisations to promote equality values throughout
all of their services.
We were established to promote equality matters throughout
Scotland and to assist organisations to challenge and address
institutionalised forms of discrimination. This is done through our
key services that include access audits, education, graduate
traineeships, policy and procedural developments, specialist
services and training and development.
Access audits are covered through the equality action planning
process and can include: audits of policies and procedures: audits
of IT services; and audits of office premises.
