Who's it for and what's it about?

Managing equalities and the requirements of The Equality Act 2010 is vital to any organisation wishing to provide fair treatment for service users, committee members, staff and job applicants.

This newly developed course will provide a reminder to staff of the protected characteristics defined by The Equality Act 2010 and the various forms of discrimination/harassment recognised by the Act. While the training sessions will reflect current legislation each session will be scenario based using case studies and video clips which will provoke discussion on a number of protected characteristics. A workshop approach will be used to consider ways of promoting and valuing diversity within the Association.

Course Content:

In an innovative way the course will include:

  • Awareness of legislative background
  • Valuing and embracing diversity
  • Case studies and Video clips
  • Diversity Strategy - Workshop discussions

 

Learning outcomes:

  • A practical understanding of responsibilities under the legislation
  • Consideration of discrimination in its various forms
  • Understanding the benefits of valuing and embracing diversity
