Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Study Pack


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 Learner's version and the Facilitator's version. It is envisaged that a learning institution will purchase a Learner's 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 staff to support the students. See foot of page for licencing details.

 

What is in the Pack?

This Equality, Diversity and Inclusion learner pack provides learners with advice, guidance and practical activities to help them explore the key issues surrounding equality, diversity and inclusion. The Learner 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 learner 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


Section 1:

What do we mean by equality and diversity?

This section covers

  • equality law
  • protected characteristics
  • types of discrimination

Section 2:

What do we mean by equality and diversity?

In this section of the pack we look at the range and diversity of the people we come into contact with every day and our rights and responsibilities in the learning environment


Section 3: Barriers to equality

In this section of the pack we look at the four main types of discrimination in more detail.


Section 4: Challenging unacceptable behaviour

In this section of the pack we look at what constitutes unacceptable behaviour and what we can do when we witness it in the learning environment.

This section specifically focuses on bullying and harassment


Section 5: Developing cultural and social awareness

In this section of the pack we explore the reasons behind the visible differences we see between certain groups and how this understanding can help us foster better relations between diverse groups. Includes using appropriate language and teminology.


Section 6: Promoting equality

In this section of the pack we look at the dangers of making assumptions about people based on what we can see.


 

Facilitator's Pack

The guide has been developed as a practical toolkit to help staff improve their practice, meet their legal and professional obligations and follow a twin-track approach to equality and diversity: that of tackling inequalities and valuing diversity. It aims to:

  • remove any mystery and misconceptions and clearly explain the concepts of equality, diversity, inclusion and discrimination
  • suggest simple strategies for supporting equality and diversity in everyday situations that learners can put into practice straight away
  • offer practical advice on dealing with challenging situations in an effective way
  • demonstrate how embracing equality and diversity creates a better learning environment for everyone
  • improve understanding and social awareness of why people behave differently and thus reduce the incidence of unwitting and unintentional discriminatory behaviour in the workplace and learning environment.

The information in the guide is supplemented by a range of activities to help you test your understanding and apply your learning to the classroom, tutorial or induction process.

Many of the activities will kick start the preliminary thinking, planning and awareness raising processes you will need to embed equality and diversity into your area of work.

Licencing Charge

Resources for single users are distributed under our Single User Licence Agreement. If you wish to publish any of our resources on a network or intranet, there is a Licencing Cost in addition to the Resource Cost and our Extended Licence Agreement will apply. The cost for the licence is dependent on the number of people who will have access to the Resource, as follows:

Where the number of people with access to the resource is 500 or less: £1 per user

Where the number of people with access to the Resource is in excess of 500, the first 500 are charged at £1 per user and the number in excess is charged at £0.50 per user.

Example:  400 Users: £400   (400 @ £1 per user)
             1000 Users: £750   (500 @ £1 per user, plus 500 @ £0.50 per user)

Licencing for each resource is charged individually, with the exception of the three resources in the Practical Tools Pack which are charged as one resource.

Multiple Licencing Charge

e.g. Three resources are purchased and placed on an Intranet with 800 users

First resource licencing cost: £650
Second resource licencing cost: £325 (£650 less 50% discount)
Third resource licencing cost: £325 (£650 less 50% discount)
