Equality and Diversity (online)


This training has been developed by People & Culture to give you a better understanding of what equality and diversity means; and why it is so important both for the University and for you as an individual.

Providing equality of opportunity in the workplace isn’t optional, it’s the law; and this training will look at the main equality legislation in place in Northern Ireland. This legislation applies to all University staff, but it also extends specific rights and responsibilities to you, and also covers you when you are on placement or in employment.

The training also covers the policies the University has in place to support equality and diversity.

The training should take approximately 40 minutes to complete and ends with a short quiz based on the information we have covered. There are also links to further reading materials both at Ulster and external organisations throughout the training.

We hope that you find this a useful resource and if you wish to continue the conversation about equality or would like any more information on the topics covered, please get in touch using the following email address - equality@ulster.ac.uk.

This course is available on Blackboard.
