Role of the Equality Named Co-ordinator (ENCO)
The Equality Act 2010 places a legal duty on all services to promote equality and end discrimination. In Essex, early years settings must meet this duty by having an ENCO.
The role of the ENCO is to lead on and identify all aspects of inequality. They must also coordinate work towards your setting being fully inclusive.
Your setting can access Role of the ENCO training. It is also suitable for childminders and includes useful audit tools and resources. See our training programme for details.
