Equality and Diversity Awareness Training

In response to a growing demand for Equality and Diversity Awareness Training and to the recommendation for such training in the Neuberger Report on Entry to the Bar, the Bar Council Equality and Diversity Committee has produced a diversity training toolkit.  The toolkit training is particularly relevant to chambers' Equal Opportunity Officers and others responsible for implementing the Equality and Diversity Code in Chambers.

The model is designed to raise awareness of the quality issues that arise at the Bar through a series of worked excercises and is drawn from the practical experience of applying equality and diversity policies in chambers.  The course is accompanied by written information on the equalities legislative framework and sessions are aimed at providing a brief introduction to the diversity compliance requirements that affect the Bar.

The training sessions lasts for one and a half hours and attracts one and a half hours CPD.  It is run monthly from the Bar Council and is free.  If you would like to attend one of these sessions, please contact Angela Campbell (ACampbell@barcouncil.org.uk)
