Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Study Pack for Learners

This equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) Study Pack for Learners provides advice, guidance and practical activities to help learners better understand what equality, diversity and inclusion really means.

The aim of this tool is to help learners develop their understanding, knowledge and skills around EDI and provides facilitators with a way of measuring their progress in this area.

The pack will be used as part of learners' development and may be used as part of learners' induction, in tutorials and as a general reference tool for them to use throughout the year.

 

There are two resources in this set - the Learners' Pack and the Facilitator's Pack. It is envisaged that an organisation will purchase a Learners' Pack, complete with multi user licence for the number of learners who will access the Pack (cost is just £1 per user), and a Facilitator's pack for the Facilitator (a manager or trainer) to support the learners. See foot of page for licencing details.

What is in the Pack?

This Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Learners pack provides learners with advice, guidance and practical activities to help them explore the key issues surrounding equality, diversity and inclusion. The Pack aims to explain apparently complex policies, practice and procedures more simply with a view to helping learners play their part in promoting equality, tackling discrimination and fostering good relationships between diverse groups.

The pack includes 18 activities that will help the learners build their knowledge and skills. Some of the activities have a differentiated version for learners who require a less challenging format.

The Pack is in 6 sections
