The course is in two parts to provide a focused learning approach:

Part 1 explores

  • the definition of diversity
  • why diversity matters to organisations (or ‘the business case’)
  • bullying and harassment, unacceptable behaviours,
  • and it delves into core aspects of unconscious bias.

Part 2 scrutinises the behaviours discussed in Part 1 under the lens of Equal Opportunity Legislation as they relate to the different strands of diversity, including; generational diversity, gender, disability, race, sexual orientation, LGBTI, etc.

A range of case studies, case law examples, and ‘did you know that?’ facts and figures have been plugged into the resources section allowing learners to carry out further research as required, with links to best practice diversity bodies.

The course ends with an interesting section on cultural diversity and workplace flexibility.

At Marshalls we’re totally focused on creating content that’s exactly right for your learners. That’s why we’ve built our business around customising our existing courses to match the needs of specific organisations. And if something completely original’s required, we’ll make a bespoke course for you from scratch.

When we do this, our approach is guided by a few key principles.

Organisational Need
Why do you need to provide learning for your users – specifically? Is there a compliance need, a requirement to raise performance – or generate positive outcomes for external stakeholders? We prioritise making this clear as the first step in all of our projects.

Learner Centric
Who are your learners? What are their preferred learning styles? What do they know already? How confident are they with using technology? We’ll put these questions to you, and base our approach around the picture we build up.

Learning Outcomes
We use these to decide what every screen in every course we make is intended to achieve. What is it – exactly – that learners need to explain, describe, distinguish or list? Defining these up-front keeps every project on course as we move from initial proposal, through to storyboarding and then development.

Engagement
Page-turning e-learning just doesn’t work. All of our courses are highly interactive, making extensive use of scenarios in particular. Rich media is used as appropriate, from audio-visual resources through to animations and bespoke graphics.

Respect for Learners
Treating learners as adults is vital to us. People don’t learn well if they feel they’re being patronised, and we aim to let users manage their own learning experience. We do this by writing our courses with an honest, direct tone, and giving learners choices in the form of additional learning resources and open navigational features.

‘What’s in it for me?’ is a question that all of our learners should be able to answer.
