Equality and Diversity Elearning for Managers

Course overview

As an employer, you have a legal obligation to ensure that all your staff fully understand their responsibilities for equality and diversity. And, as vital agents for change, this training is even more necessary for your managers.

It's important that your managers treat their team members as individuals and provide an unbiased, adjustable, and inclusive approach to management in order to facilitate each person’s needs. A good manager will lead the way and support employees to make their best contribution to the organisation. Properly trained, managers can play an instrumental role in anything from recruiting a diverse workforce, to helping avoid costly employment tribunals through appropriate management of equality and diversity in the workplace.

This 60-minute off-the-shelf elearning course will provide managers with a greater understanding of equality and diversity, and how it applies in the workplace. Managers will be able to identify the core principles of the Equality Act 2010 and understand all rights and responsibilities covered by it.

This course is ideal for managers involved in staff recruitment and development. The course deals specifically with UK regulations, although core principles and guidelines can be applied in any country.

Learning outcomes

After completing this training, your managers will be able to:

  • Explain the organisational responsibilities and liabilities under Equality legislation
  • Identify and understand the types of language and behaviour that support commitment to equality and diversity, and those that can lead to unlawful discrimination
  • Understand how equality and diversity impact recruitment, retirement and redundancy.

This course has been built using the Adapt Learning Framework which provides multi-device functionality so managers can learn on the go.
