Equality and Diversity Training - Target Audience

The world is a diverse place, and everyone has a different set of cultures, experiences and perspectives that make them unique. People have the right to be treated fairly and with respect, receive equal opportunities, and have their differences celebrated.

However, some people are subjected to unacceptable behaviour because of their differences, often unintentionally or without realising. As a result, it is important that we all understand equality and diversity, and what we can do to foster good working environments and relationships with those around us.

This equality, diversity and inclusion training course's content provides a comprehensive overview of what equality, diversity and inclusion are, and explores some of the ways in which differences can be valued and discrimination avoided. It is suitable for all employers and employees, regardless of sector or industry.

Equality and Diversity Training - Course Overview


Equality, diversity and inclusion are incredibly valuable and should be promoted in the workplace for a wide range of reasons, not simply because the Equality Act 2010 makes it illegal to discriminate against someone because of their protected characteristics.

Creating an open and inclusive workplace can help an organisation to attract new talent, increase staff retention, better understand and interact with a wide range of customers, and support employees to reach their full potential.

After completing this course, learners will understand:

  • What equality, diversity and inclusion are, and their benefits.
  • The requirements of the Equality Act 2010.
  • The characteristics that are protected against discrimination.
  • How to promote equality and diversity in the workplace.


It takes approximately 45 minutes to complete the course in full. This can be spread out over multiple sessions or completed in a single session. There is no time limit for completion.


All candidates must complete a multiple choice assessment after working through the training material. The candidate will be asked 12 multiple choice questions, randomly chosen from a larger question pool, and need to answer a minimum of 9 correctly to pass. Candidates will be given instant feedback after completing the assessment stating whether they have passed or failed. The assessment can be re-taken as many times as is required to pass at no additional cost.
