Equality & Diversity: Understanding Latest Legislation 2013/4

There are no open events scheduled for this topic. It may be run as an open event again in the future. Alternatively, we can run it as a bespoke internal event for your organisation.


Equality and Diversity have long been important dimensions for all organisations but especially so for those working in or with the Public Sector where Inspection Frameworks, Performance Monitoring, Tendering and Contractual Renewal all require staff to be kept well informed and the latest legislation and regulation met promptly. 

This workshop is delivered by an equality and diversity professional. It updates participants on the latest, planned and key legislation for 2013 but equally importantly, grasps the nettle of what effective implementation really looks like providing a rich fund of highly practical ideas.

The workshop also explores the very real ways in which political correctness can go astray and demonstrates that many initiatives instigated in good faith are, far too often, fundamentally flawed because of a lack of real knowledge about good and effective practice.  In doing so the workshop helps reduce the perceived burden of implementation whilst simultaneously helping to improve its effectiveness.

For whom

The workshop is designed to help participants understand and apply equality and diversity legislation effectively. It is suitable for representatives from all organisations and businesses, especially those involved in the management and/or the delivery of teaching and training. Including:

Internal Staff Training and Development

This training workshop, along with most of our other best practice training workshops, can be delivered as an internal training course at your premises. Even with groups as small as 6-8 delegates, the course fees per person for internal training workshops can be lower than for open events. The potential savings are even greater, if the travel time and the travel costs of the delegates are included.

Running training workshops internally is very convenient and it allows the participants to explore how key issues will impact on them and their organization. Then as a team they can begin to agree upon a development action plan, with priorities. This approach is favoured by many of our clients as it combines a high quality service with excellent value for money and is a highly effective route for staff development.
