Equality, Diversity and Discrimination Training Course
JCH Safety Ltd are a Chartered Occupational Safety and Health Practice, based in Nuneaton, Warwickshire. Our courses are prepared with our customers in mind. Our Equality and Diversity course is designed and delivered to be of assistance to our candidates. We specially tailor the course content to meet the needs and objectives of the people, environments, and organisations that we work with.
Our course objective is to provide awareness through an introduction to the Equality Act 2010 in a friendly and informative way. The course content focuses on promoting equality among all diverse people. This involves explaining the core of the legislation and helping to identify how it applies in real life.
The course explains what is meant by discrimination, harassment and victimisation, and outlines each of the protected characteristics in detail, so that you can learn how to encourage equal opportunities and ensure discrimination is prevented.
Our training has three core components:
