Certificate in Equality & Diversity
Every year, there are approximately 270,000 incidents of ‘hate crime’ in the UK. These crimes usually involve violence, and are committed against someone because of their disability, race, sexual orientation, religion or other characteristic. However, attitudes can be changed through the promotion of equality and diversity.
This qualification promotes social awareness and good practice of equality and diversity within a community, at work, at home and in society in general. This course is ideal whether you would like to strengthen your own knowledge, or become more socially aware in the workplace.

In this unit you will understand what is meant by the term ‘equality’ and explore the effects of stereotyping and labelling.
