Equality Impact Assessment Training Course

Staff are responsible for making a wide range of decisions; decisions about overarching policies, setting budgets and day-to-day decisions which affect specific individuals/ groups.

An Equality Impact Assessment, now know as an Equality Analysis, is a formal consistent process that is used to consider the impact on protected groups in terms of adverse impact or discrimination.

The Course

This training event starts at the very beginning and takes delegates step by step through all the key elements of the Equality Impact Assessment (Equality Analysis) process. The session focuses on "how to do it".

We will demystify the EA process, assume little or no prior learning and focus on giving delegates time to debate issues, ask questions and then put into practice what they learn.

Course Aims

  • Increase the learners' awareness of the concept of Unconscious Bias
  • To have an understanding of the Equality Act 2010 and the Public Sector Equality Duty
  • To understand better which groups are protected from discrimination and what types of behaviour are unlawful
  • To develop an awareness of Equality Analysis as a tool for promoting equality, tackling discrimination and fostering good relations
  • To have a better understanding of the different issues and stages of the Equality Analysis process
  • To develop some practical skills in how to use Equality Analysis within the organisation
