Course description

Public sector organisations have a responsibility under law to provide services and support their community and workforce in a way that drives forward equality and inclusion.


Employees must develop an awareness of equality, diversity and inclusion to help them meet the needs of a diverse customer base and workforce, they need to be clear about best practice, and make their own commitment to this agenda within their roles.


This programme aims to provide a general and comprehensive training for staff across the Council that ensures a good understanding of their responsibilities for equality


All delegates are required to complete the Equality and Diversity elearning session on the learning portal before attending this session
