Living in a Fair & Diverse Society - Level 2 Certificate

Part Time


Course Overview

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) reports that unemployment rates were approximately 6% higher for ethnic minorities than white people in 2018. This is just one example of the inequalities that still exist throughout the UK. Therefore, it is crucial to ensure that we educate ourselves about supporting and promoting equality and British Values. This course will equip learners with a detailed understanding of what equality and diversity means and how to promote them, as well as exploring the four British Values and positive equality movements.

Course Content

This course is ideal for learners who wish to increase their awareness and understanding of equality, diversity and inclusion, including key legislation relating to this, such as the Equality Act 2010 and the Equal Pay Act 1970. Learners will also study positive equality events and movements, including gay pride, as well as learning about British Values and how they apply to people living in the UK.


This course is split into four manageable units: 
Unit 1: Equality and Diversity 
Unit 2: Promote Equality, Diversity and Inclusion 
Unit 3: Positive Equality Movements 
Unit 4: British Values
