Course Overview

This online microcredential course explores Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) from a range of different perspectives. Microcredential courses are easily accessible short courses which cover key practical and theoretical in-demand skills, and be used to simply boost your CV or as a route into further study. After successfully completing this course, participants will receive ten Master's-level credits.

Developed and led by an expert team within the Eleanor Glanville Institute, this programme offers learners the opportunity to explore key concepts, develop and deepen their knowledge, and build their understanding of EDI, covering topics such as bias, social influence, control, allyship, and personal leadership. By gaining insights into oneself and a deeper appreciation and understanding of others, learners can develop their own original thinking and inclusive practice.

As well as individual learners wanting to increase their EDI literacy, this online programme is also suitable for businesses and employees and can be delivered as part of an organisation's EDI training provision. It is also ideal for EDI teams working within HR departments.

How You Study

Students on this course will work in a virtual learning environment, engaging with independent study materials such as online micro-lectures, videos, and reading content (relevant research literature), alongside a series of seminars and workshops that facilitate group discussion, critical-thinking, problem solving, and peer-learning. The seminars and workshops are presented as 'grand challenges', requiring group collaboration and teamworking. As the course progresses, these sessions transition to action-learning sets and to tackling real work-placed challenges.

The course is organised into eight learning units, which offer a strong, critical foundation of knowledge and understanding:

Unit 1: Why Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Matters
Unit 2: Who Do You Think You Are?
Unit 3: Social Influence and Control
Unit 4: Understanding Bias
Unit 5: Confident Conversations
Unit 6: The Minority Perspective
Unit 7: Allyship
Unit 8: Personal Leadership

The assessment for this programme is project based (80%), where the knowledge gained from the course is used to undertake an equality impact assessment of a policy, practice, event, or initiative within either a professional or educational setting.

Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive a certification of their achievement and ten Master's-level credits.
