Equality, Diversity and Human Rights

Equality, Diversity and Human Rights training in LiverpoolThis course duration is 4 hours and focuses on how we can all promote equality, diversity and human rights in our many social care and health roles.

Under the Equality Act 2010 there are specific legal requirements under existing legislation to promote equality in the areas of nine protected characteristics. These are often collectively referred to as the general duties to promote equality.

This course highlights the individual and collective responsibilities of all care staff in relation to equality following the introduction of the Equality Act 2010.
