Notes

Gender identity is recorded on the basis of the student's own self-assessment.

Providers are expected to reconfirm this information with the student, on at least an annual basis.

The Equality Challenge Unit (ECU) suggested question: Is your gender identity the same as the gender you were originally assigned at birth?

ECU has a number of resources relating to gathering information across the protected characteristics covered by the Equality Act 2010. These resources can be found at Equality Challenge Unit. If you have any further queries regarding equality monitoring, please email ECU at [email protected].

Code 98 'Information refused' should be returned when the question was asked but the individual answered that they 'preferred not to say'.
