Programme Content


Students will receive handouts and relevant literature to enable them to develop their understanding of equality and diversity appropriate to this level. Over the two days students will have the opportunity to discuss and explore issues relating to equality, diversity, professional boundaries and clients rights. There will be the opportunity over the training to allow participants to experience “real” situations and scenarios to transfer the theory of the course into practice. 

The methodology used in this training will be a combination of the following:

Participative: The participants will be asked to contribute to the training both in the large group and also in smaller ones. There will be a number of exercises throughout the training that are designed for the group to be split up into smaller groups.

Experiential: The training will allow participants to contribute by using examples of anonymous clients that they have worked with or are currently working with.

Theory into practice: The training will allow some role plays that will encourage participants to put the theory  into practice.

Information giving: There will be handouts and information on relevant reading that will be distributed at each days training.

Worker led: The training will be flexible to the needs of the group.
