Equality, Diversity & Inclusion
Equality, Diversity and Inclusion is at the heart of everything we do at Marshall E-Learning, and runs through every training course, practice and procedure.
Our work in equality and diversity e-learning began in 2002 when an insurance broker (Markel International) asked our MD David Marshall to design an online diversity in the workplace module.
Back then Marshall E-Learning partnered with ACAS to be advisors on content. Now we have in-house expertise on the topic whilst retaining close links with advisory bodies and as such are in a fantastic position to source the best consultants in their respective areas.
Our choice of subject matter expert will vary from, say, a project where a government body wants to show an external body compliance with the Equality Act 2010, to an investment bank wanting to raise awareness of unconscious bias within senior recruitment managers, or perhaps a university wanting to raise awareness among its teaching staff on how to design lessons and educational resources that are accessible. We can now draw upon a wide range of both in-house and external expertise.
Our very first training course, ‘Diversity in the Workplace’, was hailed in The Guardian Education supplement in November 2004 as representing a test case for e-learning. It has been a fast and steady rise since then. Our reputation has been built by consistently providing cost-effective training solutions quickly, but with no compromise on quality and integrity.
Since 2002 Marshall E-Learning has maintained our commitment to these high standards. Our widening knowledge pool has enabled us to establish ourselves as the industry leader in our core topics, while we continue to grow and expand through dedicated research and planning. Indeed, our pre-eminence in the field of diversity and inclusion was cemented when we developed the Equality Impact Assessment Toolkit, initially for The Arts Institute of Bournemouth on a not-for-profit basis. The toolkit is now used by clients ranging from the Tate Gallery to the UK Parliament. Still mandatory in Scotland and Wales, it has been adopted by organisations in England that seek to go beyond basic Equality Act training courses.
Our desire to grow and develop remains as strong as ever. We have expanded our services to include more bespoke products in a variety of new subject areas, including ‘bullying and harassment’. Now we can offer a solution to suit all of your training and development needs, and help you meet the current demands faced by your organisation.
