Equality, Diversity and Work-Based Learning

What it means to embed E&D when learners spend most or all of their time in the place of employment

Reasons for attending this programme:
What does it mean to integrate E&D in the curriculum for learners on WBL programmes who spend all, or the majority of their time in the place of employment? How does the role of staff involved in sign-up (enrolment) of learners and sign-up (enrolment) of new employers link with the role of assessors in embedding E&D in practice? How can assessors genuinely and meaningfully raise awareness of E&D with learners and with employers, rather than taking a tokenistic or ‘tick-box’ approach?

What is this training about?
This is a practical course that examines issues, challenges, and best practice in integrating E&D in all areas of WBL, for example recruitment, IAG, interviews, sign up (enrolment), performance analysis, assessment visits, and progress reviews. The session is tailored to staff who have a role in managing or coordinating staff involved in WBL, for example programme leaders and WBL coordinators. It will also be interest to E&D managers and quality managers.  
Assessors and staff involved in assessment visits and progress reviews will also find the course helpful. Although they may not be involved in all areas mentioned above, it will give them a helpful ‘complete picture’ of how they inter-relate with other staff in embedding E&D within the learner experience. This is also true for staff involved in IAG or sign-up (enrolment).
During this programme you learn:

  • the legal and inspection context for integrating E&D within WBL
  • ways to embed E&D within the learner experience such as sign up, induction, progress reviews and assessment
  • to evaluate strategies to raise awareness, understanding and promote E&D with learners and with employers
  • the key sector issues, challenges and solutions and reflect on your own practice, to take learning back and begin to implement some of the approaches provided
  • the benefits of integrating E&D within WBL


  • Learning is enhanced
  • Achievement gaps are narrowed and success rates improved

    Jos Frederiks NLP Trainer

  • This course has been worth every penny. Fast doesn’t mean lacking in quality. The sheer tonnage of information is astonishing. It’s so worth it. You will learn a lot even if you are a very experienced teacher and you will enjoy it
    Dr Sharon Ney

  • It doesn’t matter how experience you are, go for it. The training was the most magic. Teaching must go over to learning and we in school have to take responsibility for that. I will use this in my work as a consultant helping schools to improve. Many many thanks for a great course.
    Anita Svennson,Swedish Educational consultant

  • This course helped me widen my ideas about teaching and learning. It prompted lots of questions about how we should approach learning. Experiential learning is profound and fun. Thank you

  • I thought I knew how to design a course. After attending this training it’s totally changed my view about learning design. If you are a teacher this course is mandatory for your career.

  • I may wobble but I move forward with a giggle into all that is possible. The course has accelerated my own slow and steady learning into the amazing and continued possibility of learning
    Vicky Morgan,College lecturer

  • This was loads of fun and I loved it. Fun and interactive ways of learning and how to apply that to teaching. Some may think that its only for teachers but we are all teachers in different areas. This course totally surpassed my expectations and all my goals were achieved. Creative teaching makes you want to teach. I highly recommend it so that more good teachers equal more confident kids. Just do it!
