Age Elearning Course

Realising the benefits of an age diverse workforce

Age is probably the most common form of discrimination in the workplace.

Take George, who was made redundant in his 50s and wanted a less stressful job closer to home, but found it difficult to be taken seriously in interviews.

Would your staff be able to look beyond the common assumptions and misconceptions due to his age?

More and more organisations are reaping the business rewards of a mixed age workforce. Make sure yours is one of them.

Under the Equality Act 2010 it is illegal to discriminate against employees, job seekers or trainees on grounds of age. This exclusive training solution, available in e-learning and video formats, provides guidance on best practice in the workplace and emphasises the value of an age diverse workforce.

It is aimed at employees of all levels including foundation level employees, HR managers, diversity specialists, trainers and advisers, senior managers/executives and operational managers/executives.

This course doesn’t just consider organisations' and individuals' responsibilities under the Equality Act 2010 – it looks beyond compliance. The course content will ensure that your staff gain the knowledge and skills necessary to work successfully as part of a diverse team.

Part 1 includes

  • Manager’s module on when people join, are working or leaving
  • Assessment quiz.

Part 2 Includes

  • Legislation
  • Case studies
  • Assessment quiz.
