Equality, diversity and inclusion training

Last updated Monday 6th December 2021

This guide, produced by the NHS Staff Council Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Group, is aimed at equality, diversity and inclusion leads, HR and learning and development professionals, and trade union representatives.

It provides a framework of good practice for the delivery of mandatory NHS equality, diversity and inclusion training for all staff, including key considerations around:

  • frequency / timings
  • access
  • considerations for different groups of staff (including line managers)
  • geography (for example, an understanding of the local health economy, health inequalities and patient demographics)
  • engagement of other stakeholders
  • related policies
  • psychological support for staff.
