Train the Trainer: Equality and Diversity

This workshop is designed to be an introduction to equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) training, providing skills, knowledge or experience to advise, develop and support colleagues/organisation in EDI. It is suitable for anyone who has to deliver training, support people on a one-to-one, small group development/talks or large group basis (face to face or via the internet).

Those who already have some theoretical knowledge and practical experience of training and some EDI knowledge will also benefit from attending.

The course gives established trainers the opportunity to:

  • draw on core knowledge to develop and enhance existing skills
  • refresh their skills by exploring new EDI ideas and sharing best practice
  • explore current training techniques and approaches.

It aims to equip participants with the skills to design and deliver equality and diversity training sessions and activities at all levels. You will gain understanding of equality legislation, outlawed behaviours, how to manage conflict, deal with entrenched views, challenge unacceptable behaviour, avoid unconscious bias and use a range of learning and development approaches and techniques. You will be introduced to a wide range of EDI activities and resources to support both individual and group development and your personal delivery style.

Increase your confidence to become an effective equality, diversity and inclusion Guru.

Participants will be expected to contribute to discussions and practical activities within a small group setting.
