This is an ideal programme to help raise awareness of the issues surrounding equality and diversity and apply this awareness through actions in society, community and the workplace.
There is an expectation that learners would have a minimum of Level 1 English or skills at that level prior to enrolment.
Equality and diversity in society
You will consider what is meant by the terms ‘equality’ and ‘diversity’. You will develop an understanding of the effects of stereotyping, labelling, prejudice and discrimination and will start to understand the different characteristics that make us who we are.
Equality and diversity in the community
You will consider the extent and the value of diversity within a chosen community. As part of this you will develop an understanding of the potential inequalities which can occur within a community and the support services and groups which exist to ensure equality and diversity is maintained.
Equality and diversity in the workplace
You will develop an understanding of the meaning of equality and diversity in the workplace. This will include how equality and diversity is monitored in the workplace and how the rights of individuals are protected.
Once you have enrolled on the course, you will be allocated a tutor and assigned to your learning platform. Induction will follow and then you will be able to commence your course.
You will be assessed by submitting individual units of work and receive feedback for each unit as you progress. There is no final exam.
This course is free.
On completion of this course you will be workplace ready or have enhanced your existing work skills. You could progress on to any other distance learning course or look at the Level 3 options.
I overcame a couple of barriers by working really hard to get the top grades. My experience was really good, with the course and the lecturers, the residentials and activities, together it was all really good. I had really great teaching support, I could always go to the lecturers and speak to them if I needed to.David Stenning, Public Services student
I would say it’s a college that really balances academia with fun, there is lots of extra-curricular stuff that you can get involved in. It has a really good work/life balance.Laura Hagedorn, A Level student
