About The Course

Equality and Diversity


A half- or (preferably) one-day training session to give participants an overall understanding of what equality and diversity are all about and how it affects the staff and service users in your workplace.

Target Group

Anyone working in a health and/or social care setting.  Participants should remember that this is a practical session looking at ways in equality and diversity can be promoted in real-life working settings, rather than a theoretical session looking at equality and diversity in an abstract context.

Venue and timings

Your own training room; we suggest 10.00am–4.30pm (9.30am–12.30pm or 1.30pm–4.30pm for half-days)

Learning outcomes: by the end of this session participants should:

  • Understand what is meant by “discrimination”, “equality”, “diversity” and many other pieces of jargon that are regularly used in this context
  • Be able to list some of the various ways in which equality and diversity can be promoted
  • Understand the main points of the relevant pieces of legislation, especially the Equality Act 2010
  • Be able to give some explanations for why discrimination occurs
  • Understand the real meaning behind some common discriminatory statements
  • Be able to list the types of discrimination that can occur in their own workplaces
  • Understand the way in which people who are on the receiving end of discrimination (eg service users) can sometimes discriminate against other people (eg other service users, or members of staff, or members of the general public)
  • Be able to differentiate between simple “political correctness” and genuine commitment to equality and diversity
  • Understand the circumstances in which discrimination is a good thing (yes, really!)
  • Understand how power and control are important issues in relation to equality and diversity
  • Have practised some techniques for challenging discrimination confidently in a variety of forms

Training methods used

All of our training sessions are intended to be as interactive as possible. Participants are encouraged to ask questions, make comments and bring up their own issues. We use lots of different methods including quizzes, case studies, video clips and small group work as well as direct teaching. We want participants to leave the session saying “that was really enjoyable – and it was directly relevant to my working life.”
