This is the second time I have been in a training session of Alyson’s and it was excellent once again in both delivery and content.
A very professional approach that will help me to focus on organisational and client needs
The session was different from my expectations. The group was much smaller than I expected which was a huge benefit, there were far more training tools available than one would usually find at a course and the trainer was happy to share training tips and ideas with the group or with us as individuals. I felt that the trainer was interested in us as individuals and the sectors we work in.
Definitely would recommend the course Speaker made the session relaxed. Had a style that I would wish I could emulate
An excellent course which really enhances your knowledge as skills as a trainer in this area

"Very thought provoking. Excellent guest speaker, related issues to current topics. Probably the best training day I have attended! Correct pace, very interesting and a good variety of exercises to complete made the day very enjoyable"
"Speaker/Trainer was excellent-very knowledgeable and able to put points across in a clear way. She was professional but approachable. She made the session more interesting by use of interactive tasks and video recordings – held groups concentration. Her handout is a very informative reference resource. Her information also gave realistic and practical suggestions – not just legislative solutions. I think everyone in the company should have the opportunity to attend a similar training session."

If organisations are to successfully implement equal opportunities, staff need to update their equality and diversity knowledge, skills, experience and personal and professional development.
The UK is becoming increasingly diverse; in order to meet the diverse needs of service users and staff, employers need to be pro-active in all that they do to promote equality and diversity.
Equality and Diversity UK provides a range of equality and diversity 'intimate' seminars, workshops, briefings, training programmes, information, advice and guidance, all of which support organisations to promote equality and diversity and foster good equality practice. Our open training programmes support delegates to reflect on their attitudes, actions and practice, which helps individuals to increase their self awareness, confidence and competence.
We are skilled at engaging even the most sceptical delegates and in delivering training which is supportive and inclusive.
As well as the following seminars and
training events, we also offer tailor-made
in-house equality and diversity training courses
