We specialise in providing in-house training on equality and diversity issues. For us, promoting equality and valuing diversity are part of every aspect of running a successful business and our training courses reflect that. Our aim is to offer equality and diversity training that brings real value to your organisation and we design and deliver training that is participative, thought-provoking and enjoyable.

As well as running a programme of training and events, we can develop training programmes tailored to your specific requirements. Depending on your needs and objectives, we can plan anything from a single day’s training to a large modular programme that seeks to address equality and diversity training needs across the whole organisation – from frontline staff to contractors and Board and Committee members.

We use an active learning approach. Participants will be fully involved and their background, experience and knowledge will be central to the learning process. Our trainers are experienced facilitators who will guide and support everyone through the day, making sure that the training has maximum impact. The core of our approach is valuing diversity “here and now” – every training day is in itself an opportunity to learn from and appreciate the expression of diverse identities, backgrounds and experiences.

We also provide our own e-learning module on equality and diversity and can provide ‘blended learning’ experiences, including support to develop ‘blended learning’ training strategies and programmes. More information on our own e-learning module as well as a range of other courses is available here.


We can also provide a range of drama based training with our partners at Enact Solutions. More information is available here of the courses on offer.
