Equality and Diversity Training for Students

Raising awareness of diversity issues on campus
Real progress has been made to ensure further and higher education staff understand equality and diversity rights, responsibilities and best practice… but what about students? Our equality and diversity training for students course has been introduced to help redress the balance.

Increasing student diversity inevitably brings challenges for education institutions and can result in peer-to-peer conflict on campus, and individuals failing to work to their full potential or even leaving the institution due to difficult classroom dynamics, or fellow students’ insensitivity.

Your learning outcomes
This innovative diversity training programme for further and higher education students will:

  • Raise awareness of the advantages of social diversity among students.
  • Reduce the likelihood of allegations of discrimination and harassment within the student community.
  • Make sure that students know about their equality and diversity rights and responsibilities.
  • Be an important component in an institution’s response to legal duties to promote equality and good relations between different groups of students.

Course duration: 60 minutes
Learners have the option to bookmark progress and complete the course in chunks.

Learning by design
All our ‘E-learning for Students’ courses are highly interactive with rich graphics and audio-visual content, blending a variety of question-types that can be used as part of student induction, skills development or citizenship-related programmes. Or they could provide a springboard for classroom discussion.

Easy to implement & customise
All our e-learning courses come with Marshall  LMS which allows you to manage every e-learning course and track completed training across your organisation.

Our in-house developers can quickly & effectively adapt this course to your sector and organisation, giving you the option to add your own graphics, photos & video, and amend content to include your policies, procedures and key areas.

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.
