Work Rights Centre has been invited to deliver a bespoke training on Equalities and Work Rights in English and Romanian as part of an ESOL course organised by Hertfordshire County Council.
Our Community Development Manager, who has Equality, Diversity & Inclusion work experience, developed specific training materials combining information about the Equality Act 2010, Human Rights, discrimination at work and citizenship in relation to community cohesion.
The learners from the two sessions have expressed interest in learning more about the benefits of working in a diverse team, ‘do’s and don’t's’ in case of discrimination at work due to one or more of the nine protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010, improving their employability through volunteering, and many more.
This has been a great opportunity for us to extend our engagement to beneficiaries from a different borough and to enhance our portfolio of activities delivered to support EU nationals in the UK. It was a one-of-a-kind project that has demonstrated the strong connection between having a good understanding of our rights and working in a discrimination-free environment.
We look forward to delivering more sessions in the future in other areas in the UK. If you are interested in booking a training session, please get in touch via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
