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).

We offer training at different levels, to suit the needs of a wide range of trainers/ potential trainers and in-house trainers. Our Train the Trainer programmes are delivered to small groups in order to ensure adequate personal support in the training environment.

The programmes are designed and delivered with sufficient time for practical activities, videos, shared knowledge and understanding. There is opportunity throughout the programme to practice and enhance skills in a safe and constructive learning environment.

Free training resources (worth £600) are provided, subject to copyright conditions, but training and support doesn’t stop there. Post-course, we offer 3 months free access to our EDI Network to support the roll-out of design, planning and delivery of your programmes.

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.

Delegates attending this training course do not have to have experience of delivering EDI training; however, a basic understanding of equality, diversity and inclusion is a prerequisite for the course.

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

The workshop is highly interactive with a structured approach and a lively pace.

Sound educational principles and practical activities are carefully blended with discussion and reflection to provide a stimulating and motivating experience for all participants.

Courageous Conversations about Race

Knowing what, when and how to challenge can be difficult. Within your role you will, at times, be required to challenge others' behaviour because you think it is potentially discriminatory; there are some attitudes, language and behaviours that are unacceptable: e.g. racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, disablist, ageist. This course prepares you to have those courageous conversations.
