Course Overview

Workplace equality is a right for all employees and challenging it when it’s not in place is important. If you work in health and social care, you’re particularly likely to encounter people from a wide range of backgrounds and some of these people will need your support to promote adequate equality and inclusion. Cultural awareness training can help clarify the areas in which some people struggle in the workplace.
