This will help learners apply their awareness through actions in society, community and the workplace.


As most companies are now looking to employ staff who already hold a Level 2 Certificate in English and Maths (i.e. GCSE grade C or above), a requirement for the course is that you have a minimum of Level 1 in English and Mathematics or be prepared to sit an English and Maths assessment to establish your current levels. However please do discuss any queries regarding this with the teaching and assessing as all applications will be considered on an individual basis.

Equality and diversity in society – the learner will consider what is meant by the terms ‘equality’ and ‘diversity’. They 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 – the learner will consider the extent and the value of diversity within a chosen community. As part of this they 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 – the learner 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.


The course will run for 12 weeks, one hour session a week in a workshop setting.  There is an expectation that learners will also access their portfolio tasks independently in between sessions to meet deadlines and complete timely.

Classroom based tasks and portfolio.

This course is FREE if you meet the eligibility requirements or depending on your circumstances, you may be eligible to receive full or part funding for the course. Please do contact us and we will be happy to advise you.

On completion of this course you will be work place ready or could progress on to any other Adult Learning course.

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.

There are lots of people at the college, each studying a diverse range of courses, people from all different areas come to study here, it creates a sense of community, there is a huge social aspect to college life across all courses.

Lee Backhouse, BTEC student

My experience at the College was great, it’s very different to school, and I think it’s a good step to going to university. The support was amazing, I loved all of my teachers, they helped me through everything. The College is friendly and you will succeed.
