Equality and Diversity E-learning Training Essential to All Staff
E-Learning materials relating to general and specific responsibilities for university staff in relation to equal opportunities are available to all staff via the e-learning platform LearnUpon. The training has been developed specifically for Higher and Further Education, and is used in many Universities. The training will provide you with the necessary knowledge and understanding of a developing and important area of law, in relation to your role and responsibilities. Regrettably, we do live in litigious times and in the event of unjust complaints made against you, the fact that you have completed relevant training in this subject will assist in defending any claims.
