Course overviews:

Cultural Awareness in Community Engagement

This course aims to provide a wider knowledge and understanding of the difference between certain cultures and faiths. The course explores a number of diverse cultures and their history and gives practical advice on overcoming barriers to communicate and engage with diverse communities.

Equality Act 2010 - Challenging Discrimination

This course covers how to take action if your employee or student reports an incident of hate or discrimination and how to develop an inclusive work environment for those from different ethnic or religious backgrounds as well as those from other minority groups.
The course works towards the elimination of discrimination in the workplace and education and aims to promote equality of opportunity across all protected characteristics of the Equality Act 2010.
This course explores the background and need for Equality legislation as well as a comprehensive overview of the Act. The course explores the types of discrimination that are covered by the Act and discusses case studies to demonstrate how the equality legislation may apply.

Racism Awareness Training

This course is aimed to provide the skills and confidence to challenge racism when encountered in work and life. It also raises awareness of the relevant legislation – to address racism both in relation to discrimination and hate crime. This training course thus has a specific focus on race and also covers the appropriate and inappropriate terminology as well as the grey areas within both.

Hate Crime Awareness Training

The UK has witnessed spikes in hate crime following the 2016 EU referendum, however, many people still don’t report. This course aims to empower people to know their rights and how to report as well as to promote racial equality as a human right. This course covers the impact of hate on people’s lives and explores the difference between hate crime and the issues arising from the different categories of hate crime. The areas covered include all five hate crime strands: disability, race, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity.

Islamophobia Awareness Training

This course provides participants with knowledge and awareness to recognise and tackle Islamophobia and anti-Muslim discrimination. The course explores the causes and impact of Islamophobia on individual victims and communities.

“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!”

“Excellent training programme. I felt the trainers were very knowledgeable and approachable.”
