About the course

The LGBTQ+ Awareness Training course has been developed to give employees and employers working in the UK the tools and skills to create a fully inclusive workplace environment.

Current research estimates that more than 35% of LGBTQ+ staff have hidden or disguised the fact that they were LGBTQ+ at work because they were afraid of discrimination.

The Equality Act (2010) legally protects people from discrimination in the workplace and in wider society. Sex, gender reassignment and sexual orientation are protected characteristics under the Act. This means that employers have a legal obligation to protect all their staff, avoid discrimination and provide a working environment that is free from prejudice.

Our LGBTQ+ Awareness Training course will help all businesses train their team members about the key elements of the law, show you how to avoid discrimination and provide information about how to act inclusively towards all staff.

Aims of the course

The aim of the course is to give an understanding of the LGBTQ+ community in the UK and to help inform all staff about the need for an inclusive environment in the workplace.  Learners will acquire knowledge of the effects and impacts of prejudice and discrimination and learn about The Equality Act and LGBTQ+ history, rights and law.

By the end of this course learners will:

  • Have an understanding of key LGBTQ+ terminology.
  • Be aware of LGBTQ+ history, rights and law.
  • Know what they should do to ensure an inclusive workplace.
  • Understand the effects and impact of discrimination and prejudice.

LGBTQ+ Awareness Training Certificate

Our e-learning courses use formal and informal assessment methods to check learner understanding and measure the transfer and retention of knowledge and skills. Upon successful completion of a formal assessment (achieving the pass mark or above), a certificate is awarded to the learner in recognition of their achievement.

Digital certificate – print, download, store

A digital certificate can be downloaded and / or printed. Users may prefer the ‘paper-less’ option that automatically updates their digital learning record, stored in the cloud. Records contain details of sessions including progress, attempts and results – stored on our platform or the client’s Learning Management System (LMS).

Learning records are available 24/7 to review sessions, learner progress as well as provide access to certificates. This information is ideal for recording learning activity centrally including any associated CPD. Various reports demonstrate proof of planned and recorded learning activities. This assists with the management of compliance as well as pathways for achieving competence and behavioural change.

About the certificate

The e-learning certificate includes a unique Certificate ID specific to that learner, learner’s name, course title, the score percent mark achieved along with the date of completion and the marks of the approval, accreditation authorities and / or distribution partners.

Please note: when accessing the course via standalone media or 3rd party systems, you may need to follow separate ‘in-house’ steps for logging learning activity appropriate to that method of delivery.
