Understanding Diversity and Inclusion contains over two hours of interactive learning content and will be delivered to Action for Children's employees and volunteers over the coming months.

Ian Millar, Deputy Director of HR for Action for Children said:

"This is the first time that we have used e-learning to train our employees and volunteers in Diversity and Inclusion and we are delighted with the package.

Our Understanding Diversity and Inclusion e-learning programme includes thought provoking and educational content and features real-life scenarios that all our employees and volunteers can relate to. It moves far beyond equality and diversity legislation to make our employees consider the 'impact' of their actions in relation to equality, diversity and inclusion. The Learning and Development Team should be very proud of the work they have invested in bringing this project to fruition.

We are looking forward to rolling it out across the organisation."

Speaking about the new e-learning programme, Dr. Maureen Murphy, Director of Aurion Learning said:

"Action for Children asked us to help them create a high impact e-learning programme for their employees and volunteers. Understanding Diversity and Inclusion contains six e-learning modules and is underpinned by best practice educational design principles.

Each highly interactive module includes animated stories, interactive quizzes and games, case studies and workbook activities. At the end of the programme, employees complete an assessment exercise to test their learning and receive a certificate of achievement. The e-learning programme also includes additional resources such as links to Action for Children policies, useful websites and equality legislation."

Action for Children, one of the UK's largest children's charities, supports and speaks out for the most vulnerable and neglected children and young people in the UK, helping them to achieve their full potential.
