In recognition of the continuing importance of equality analysis we’ve enhanced our Equality Analysis Toolkit, because:

  • It’s an effective business tool to improve policy development and service delivery
  • It helps you identify unintended, unfair and possibly discriminatory consequences of your services and workplace practice
  • It’s a good way to ensure compliance with legal obligations under the public sector Equality Duty.

Case law shows us that timely and robust equality analysis demonstrates ‘due regard’ to the aims of the public sector Equality Duty, and that public bodies understand how their policies, practices and decisions impact on equality. And well-documented equality analysis is a useful means of demonstrating compliance in court.

Equality analysis will ensure your organisation’s policies, services and decisions work well for everyone and, in particular, are meeting the needs of the protected groups under the Equality Act 2010.

Improved and enhanced
Our Equality Analysis Toolkit offers many enhancements to our original version:

  • Clearer terminology
  • A modern and user friendly feel
  • Less tabs: admin functions and EAs are under one tab
  • New look dashboard with bespoke welcome message
  • Easier to see completed EAs and when they’re ready for sign-off.
  • Improved formatting capabilities
  • A more flexible question builder.

The Equality Analysis Toolkit allows you to customise core content and prompt questions that reflect your organisation’s approach and language around equality issues.

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.

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.
