About the Course

Equality and diversity awareness is an important concept in the workplace. Both as an employer or employee, you have a duty to understand what equality and diversity is and how it should be implemented in the workplace.

This course will guide you through the different elements of equality and diversity, looking at the Equality Act in the first half of the course before progressing onto the identification of protected characteristics. You will be able to differentiate between direct and indirect discrimination and understand how to identify harassment and victimisation.

The final section of the course will cover what you should do if you witness or experience any type of discrimination including reporting procedures and best practice. This section will also cover unfair treatment and how inequalities can be addressed.
