What is the course about?

This course introduces you to the key aspects of equality and diversity and the importance of equality and diversity in the workplace, in society, and in communities. You will look at the main principles of equality and diversity, the rights and responsibilities of both employers and employees in the workplace, diverse communities, and the importance of working or learning in a place that promotes diversity.

Having an awareness of equality and diversity is vital, especially in the workplace. Completing this course means you can help ensure equality and diversity processes are adhered to within your organisation.

This is a flexible course allowing you to learn from your own home, in your own time.

Within this course, you will also look at how diversity enriches community life, as well as the multiple threats that sadly still exist today which threaten the development of increased equality and diversity.
