Equality and Diversity Level 2 Certificate
What is this course about?
This knowledge-based QCF qualification covers enhanced early-stage learning and concepts relating to equality and diversity, particularly relating to society, the workplace, and the community. This will enable learners to develop a level of knowledge beyond the standard employer-sponsored training experience, which will provide them to access to further learning routes or career progression.
The objective of this qualification is to allow learners to raise their awareness of the issues surrounding equality and diversity and
apply this awareness through their actions in society, community and the workplace.
This qualification consists of the following mandatory units:
Equality and diversity in society
Equality and diversity in the community
Equality and diversity in the workplace
The requirement for learners to complete the 3 mandatory units ensures they gain an understanding of the societal, community and workplace context of equality and diversity.
Learners will gain an understanding of the terminology, application, context and social constructs relating to equality and diversity, which is of particular value to employers as they’ll be able to apply this to their professional life and further studies.
