Equality and Diversity Training

Equality and Diversity is vitally important to both our mission as a university and to our institutional values. We would like to ensure that every University employee understands and supports our approach to advancing Equality and Diversity and so we have created this online training.

The training takes approximately an hour, however if you wish to follow all the links to extra content then it may take a little longer.  It is best to try and complete the training in one sitting, however as long as you exit the package correctly it will remember where you get to.

To take the training on Blackboard just log-in using your usual ID and password:

Most staff have been enrolled automatically and will see the course in
My Courses, here is a short guide to accessing the course.

If you do not see the course in My Courses then you will need
to self-enrol, here is a
short guide to enrolling on the course.

There is no certificate issued at the end of this course; on a regular basis the Equalities Team will send out an email to all those that have recently completed the training, you may wish to file this and forward a copy on to your manager.

Please also remember to update your equalities data on Employee Self Service.  If you are concerned about the use of this data then see our guide here and this Stonewall PDF is also useful.

The resources below are found in the course but you might like to revisit them from here at a later date (all links open in a new window):
