Culture awareness training
The course will provide a wider knowledge and understanding of the difference between certain cultures and faiths. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss their own cultures and compare this with organisational (or workplace) cultures. By exploring the meaning of cultural awareness through scenarios and case studies, participants will come away with practical advice and be better equipped with culturally competent skills. The course gives excellent advice and ideas on overcoming barriers to communicate in a cross-cultural environment and how to engage more effectively with diverse communities.
Racism awareness training
Racism awareness training is designed to give participants a better understanding of racism and will enable individuals and organisations to recognise, raise concerns and challenge racial prejudice when encountered in work and life. Using lived experiences to show the impact of racism, the course will show how modern racism is harder to detect but still manifests itself in so many ways. Other topics covered by the course are allyship, micro-aggressions and micro-incivilities, conscious and unconscious bias. Participants will take away self-reflective skills on how they make decisions and recognise how bias can result in illogical and irrational decisions leading to misconceptions and stereotypes. If you are committed to building a culture in which your organisation will become truly anti-racist, then this course is for you!
Equality Act 2010 and Discrimination
An excellent course that will give you an overview of the Equality Act 2010, including its purpose and aims. To understand how the law protects individuals from discrimination, there will be opportunities to identify through scenarios, the protected characteristics and examine the types of discrimination covered by the Equality Act. Through case studies and scenarios, participants will discuss and demonstrate how equality laws are applied and its effects. By discussing how to prevent discrimination from occurring, individuals and organisations will learn how to challenge all forms of discrimination.
Anti-Discrimination Workshops for Schools
Race Equality First provides primary and secondary schools in South Wales with free workshop sessions to raise awareness of issues such as racism, anti-bullying, hate crime and the promotion of equality and respect. The purpose of the workshop is to educate and empower young people to know: their rights; what hate crime and discrimination are; the impact of hate on people’s lives and how to report. The workshop will use case studies of racism and hate crime and highlight the effects of hate crime on victims. Pupils will have the opportunity to engage in dialogues with our expert speakers who have lived experiences to share and real-life stories to tell! These workshops have been very popular with schools so if you are interested, it is recommended you enquire early!
The cost of each training programme will differ and will depend on the length and content of the programme designed to meet the specific needs of an organisation. Other considerations included in the cost will be number of attendees and delivery mode (remotely or in-person).

“Thank you for the training, it was full of relevant information, great interaction via zoom. enjoyed it.”
“I really enjoyed this course. It was very informative and I learnt things I was totally unaware of, particularly the law and what we can actually do about it. If not for us then for others.”
“The training was very informative and the hosts worked really well together. Thank you very much!”
“Really useful session. Clare and Roon were both great despite some technical difficulties 🙂 I found it extremely informative and feel like so many should have opportunity to join sessions in the future.”
“Very useful session, would love to play a part in disseminating further. Sadly, unconscious bias runs parallel with selective knowledge. Too many people turn a blind eye or tolerate intolerance, with damaging consequences.”
“Very useful training and a good recap on my current knowledge. It would be great if all organisations i.e. not just non profit or employers in the sector could receive this training. Thank you!”
