Managing good relations in colleges and higher education: training packs

Published: 14/12/2015

Training materials to adapt and use in your institution

  • Managing good relations in colleges in Scotland
  • Managing good relations in higher education

Colleges and higher education institutions have a legal duty to foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not. These training resources are designed to help you to train colleagues to identify those issues that might cause tensions between different groups, to deal effectively with incidents that arise, and to create an environment where good relations thrive. While primarily designed for use with staff, these resources are also relevant to students and can be easily adapted for that purpose.

These materials have been developed to support and reflect the ECU guidance Promoting good relations on campus: a guide for higher and further education. They are designed for use by people responsible for equality and diversity training to adapt to your own institutional context.

The training pack includes:

  • Trainer’s handbook
  • Presentation slides
  • Handouts
  • Activity materials
