The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) reports that unemployment rates were approximately 6% higher for ethnic minorities than white people in 2018. This is just one example of the inequalities that still exist throughout the UK.
Therefore, it is crucial to ensure that we educate ourselves about supporting and promoting equality and British values.
This course will equip learners with a detailed understanding of what equality and diversity means and how to promote them, as well as exploring the four British values and positive equality movements.
Students wishing to undertake the certificate should be aged 19 or over. There are no specific recommended prior learning requirements for this qualification, however, learners may find it helpful if they’ve already achieved a Level 1 qualification.
