Unconscious Bias Awareness

All Staff – this module is mandatory for all members of staff as part of their induction to the organisation. Any longer standing members of staff who have not yet undertaken this module already, should also do so.

Our background and personal experiences, societal stereotypes and cultural context can have an impact on our decisions and actions without realising.

This session looks to identify unconscious biases and understand their potential for impacting on decision making and develop techniques to minimise their impact.

 

Equality Impact Analysis

All staff that need to carryout Equality Impact Analysis.

This module introduces the concept of Equality Impact Assessments (EIAs) and explains what they are, why they’re important, what the law says and key stages of the EIA process.

 

Identifying and Responding to Student Mental Health Problems

All staff, in particular those with student-facing roles

The Student Mental Health course will allow staff across the University, whatever their role, to learn useful information about student mental health and also to learn some basic skills around managing students who are presenting signs of mental ill health or are at risk. This includes appropriate signposting for additional support.

Digital Accessibility

All University staff who create any kind of written and/or visual communications - this includes word/pdf documents, web content, blogs, social media posts, newsletters, posters and even emails.

This module will guide staff who create online content through our requirements under the new Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications Accessibility Regulations (2018).
