Diversity in the Workplace is a modular programme
of qualifications for the continuous and professional development
of individuals working in the area of diversity management.
This unique programme was developed in response to needs expressed
by employers both within the private and public sectors across
the UK. A central aim of the programme is to support diversity
practitioners in improving their organisation and to set their
role on a more professional footing.
Having adopted a modular framework, the programme of study
is accessible through distance learning and in order to meet
the full needs of learners the course is available online,
offline or in a combination of the two learning methods. Assessment
is by means of assignments and work-related projects. This
gives participants the opportunity to develop a range of skills
and competences immediately transferable to the workplace
On successful completion of course-work learners qualify for
the BTEC Professional Diploma, Certificate or Award. The programme
is quality assured and accredited by Edexcel as a Centre-Devised
set of qualifications at level 4 on the UK Qualifications
The programme has been continuously developed by Digitalife
since 1998, and has subsequently received support from the
former Bradford Training and Enterprise Council, Yorkshire
Forward, West Yorkshire Learning and Skills Council and Bradford
City Council under the ESF EQUAL initiative.
