The changing and diverse nature of our communities poses many challenges for individuals, groups and employers throughout the UK. In order to allow the social inclusion of all people in society, there is a need to bring equality, diversity and rights issues into the mainstream so that they are no longer viewed as something only affecting ‘minority’ groups.
This course aims to give learners an introduction to the issues around stereotyping, prejudice and discrimination. It will also help them to identify the basic rights that all people should enjoy and the shared values people have, whilst examining the responsibility each person and organisation has in ensuring that barriers to participation in society are removed.
It will involve 180 hours of personal learning to complete. Most students complete the course in 30 weeks, averaging almost 6 hours of personal learning per week.
The programme is designed for learners aged 16 and above, who are working in a range of settings within the public, private or voluntary sectors and who wish to raise their awareness of mental health.
Additional Entry Requirements
