Equality, Diversity & Inclusion in the CWU
The purpose of this LTB is to advise branches that a full review of the Fair and Equal course has now been concluded and a new style course is complete and ready to be delivered in branches and regions.
Amongst the changes is the pre-course activity, which has been scaled back and reduces the amount of own time learning by students in advance of classroom training. Although some pre-course activity does still exist, it is now more relevant to a representative’s role and will complement the work they do within their branch and region.
All of the activities have been redesigned and cover the following essential elements:
- Similarities & Differences
- Terminology & Language
- The Protected Characteristics and the Law
- Stereotyping & Prejudice
- Why is equality a Trade Union Issue?
- What if…?
The new course will remain a one day course (2 days in Northern Ireland).
Due to changes in funding the course in England can no longer run as an accredited course, however, it is still a CWU mandatory course and will only be delivered by CWU aligned tutors who are willing to assist in the classroom. Student participation rates will also continue to be monitored by my department.
The aim is to now pilot the course over the next 6 months and review the new style approach with CWU tutors at the end of this period.
Any enquiries regarding this LTB should be addressed to the Equality, Education & Development Department by email to email@example.com
