The Equality and Diversity course is an interesting new course that aims to give an introduction to the issues around stereotyping, prejudice and discrimination.
This is a Core subject and 100% course work, equivalent to two GCSE Grade Bs. You will have the opportunity o identify the basic rights that all people should enjoy and the shared
values people have, and to examine the responsibility that each person and organization has in ensuring that barriers to participation in society are removed. You will look at the various laws which affect equality and diversity, and how workplaces have to take account of them.
NCFE Equality & Diversity consists of three units that are all coursework based.
