This half-day “Inclusion, Diversity & Equality’ course uses theatre-based learning to bring the Equality Act 2010 to life, looking at how to manage unacceptable behaviours that could lead to discrimination, and giving clarity on our contributions to ensure an inclusive and diverse working environment. For classroom and virtual courses, we can run it twice per day to provide maximum cost benefits. We also have a digital version of this course, which can be delivered on our ted Learning HuB.

What is it?

A highly interactive, educational, lively and fun course using professional actors and our expert Inclusion, Equality and Diversity trainer.

We bring the Equality Act 2010 to life and clearly explain the legislation in a very fun and practical way. We cover the 9 Protected Characteristics and the 4 types of discrimination. The legislation doesn’t have to be dry and this course is anything but!


What will I do during the session?

An interactive session which is a blend of live actor scenarios, discussions, practical activities, legislation explanations, recent relevant case studies and an EdRespect© Board Game. And don’t worry – there is NO role-play!

After the course, you will have a greater understanding of what the Equality Act 2010 means to you as an individual in the workplace.

embedding the learning.

This Inclusion, Equality & Diversity course is delivered using observational theatre-based learning. Our actors perform a number of scenarios based on real-life case studies. In addition to these scenes, we facilitate discussions after each one to understand the impact and we embed the legislation.

To check the learning is embedded we then end with a few rounds of our EdRespect Game. In the classroom and virtual session, learners are in teams and we test their understanding from the course and also stretch the learning with further case studies, questions and examples. This creates a high energy end of the session.  The EdRespect Game is also at the end of the digital course.

Some faq's about Inclusion Equality & Diversity Training.

0.1 What is Theatre based learning?

Theatre Based Learning is the technique we use to bring learning to life by using our actors to perform scenarios, based on real case studies.

Theatre Based Learning can be either observational (where learners watch scenes and discuss) OR participative (where we use techniques like real-play and practice, forum where learners interact with the actors and direct them or hot-seating where learners give feedback to individual characters and make suggestions). This course uses our actors to both demonstrate presentation skills and often made mistakes and techniques with the ability for all learners to present and receive feedback

0.2What are the benefits of Equality and Diversity training?
An open and inclusive workplace has many benefits - both to the organisation and to individuals; such benefits include an increase in morale, better staff retention and improved company reputation. The internal and external risks of getting it wrong are too high and this course enables all employees to feel empowered to create a positive culture.
0.3Why is inclusion, equality and diversity training important?
Both employers and employees have legal obligations under this legislation - getting it wrong can lead to serious consequences for both employee and employer.

    sustained blended learning.

    Our training is observational and participative, using teams of actors to bring it to life. We recognise that taking part in role-play is not for everyone, so we offer observational training – this is where two of our acting team demonstrate scenes related to the course and delegates observe and comment on the behaviors. Where a business is more confident working with actors, we take this to the next level with participative training so delegates get to practice their newly learnt skills.
