Skills for Care

Building confidence to improve equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) across your organisation, our ‘Creating an inclusive organisation’ elearning modules are for anyone working in social care who’d like to learn more about EDI. People from ethnic minority backgrounds often face barriers to career progression and the modules explore what these are.

The modules are primarily aimed at those from ethnic minority backgrounds as they’ve been designed to support learners to deal with specific challenges they may face in the sector, and to help build confidence to improve equality, diversity and inclusion within their organisation. However, the modules may be of interest to anyone, at any level, who is interested in EDI and how to improve this within their organisation.


Programme content

It consists of two elearning modules which are designed to develop leadership skills and promote career progression. All topics covered in the modules form part of an action plan which can be used by the participant to improve their learning and understanding but can also be used to educate colleagues and improve EDI within their organisation. 

Topics include:

  • an overview of equality, diversity and inclusion
  • discrimination
  • promoting equality, diversity and inclusivity within your organisation
  • leadership and management
  • personal branding
  • communication skills
  • career barriers and career progression.

 It should take around four hours to work through the two elearning modules and you’ll receive a certificate once completed. 

The modules are an introduction to our flagship Moving Up programme which is aimed at Black and Asian minority groups, who are leaders or aspiring leaders and want to develop themselves and progress in their career at all levels, in all roles, in all types of organisations (such as voluntary, 3rd sector, private and community based organisations).



£90 for both modules. 

We’re pleased to confirm that employers can claim £100 per participant once the learner has completed both modules and received their certificates, subject to meeting the eligibility criteria for the Workforce Development Fund (WDF).
