Additional Information

Preparation and Follow Up
It would be of benefit to complete our Equality and Diversity eLearning prior to undertaking this workshop. This eLearning can be accessed on the East Sussex Learning Portal (ESLP) via this link.  

As part of the Race Equality in the Workplace pilot, taking part in Early Help & Social Care this year, the Organisational Development team are asking delegates to complete three short questionnaires to evaluate the effectiveness of this training. As such you will be contacted to complete one just before this training, just after it, and 3-5 months after that. It will take no longer than 5mins to complete each one.

Joining instructions

Important note. This course will be delivered by Microsoft Teams. Full joining instructions, including links to access the training and guidance will be provided with your confirmation email. Please ensure you read these prior to the course start date and keep them in a safe place.

Please check your spam/junk mail folders for expected emails not showing in your inbox and take action to ensure these get delivered to your inbox in future.

Please note that, due to the sensitive nature of the content and at the request of the trainer, anyone attempting to join the training more than five minutes late will not be admitted to the session. The first half an hour sets the ethics, values and theoretical framework for the training, and if delegates miss this important section, they will lack the necessary context for the rest of the training. It is advisable to be logged in and ready to go at least 15 minutes before the start of the course so you allow some time for you to resolve any technical issues, as we are unable to provide assistance on the day.
