Equality and diversity for housing professionals

Study online and gain a qualification


Housing plays a fundamental role in everyone’s life.  Homes and the communities in which they are located, directly influence equality and diversity.

This can often be quite a challenge, so the first step is to increase our knowledge, understanding and skills in this area.

This online unit has been designed to introduce learners to equality and diversity legislation in a housing context. It also looks at the diversity of communities and how organisations respond to diversity in order to provide effective services.

At the end of their studies learners will:

  • Know equality and diversity legislation and how it relates to housing
  • Understand the diversity of housing service users, and how they impact on housing organisations
  • Understand the approaches used by housing organisations to respond to the diverse needs of service users

This stimulating online qualification allows learners to learn at their own pace!
