This Foundation Course is designed for those beginning their careers in Chambers so as to present a very good way to ensure that junior staff are aware and knowledgeable with regards to Equality and Diversity in the workplace and are able to understand good E&D practice.  

The full E&D course is much more extensive and specifically designed to give Members of the Bar and Chambers staff whose role encompasses allocation of work for members and pupils, practice development meetings, managing more junior staff, overseeing the development and training of more junior staff, and assisting on recruitment. a good understanding of diversity equality and inclusion and principally their context within a Chambers environment.

The ABC Equality and Diversity training modules were specifically written for Members of Chambers and Chambers’ support staff by specialist employment barrister Kerry Gardiner.

How this training works 

The training is divided into manageable sections. Each section can be worked on separately and you are able to leave and re-join from different devices from the point at which here you left off. The training can be completed when you choose. You can work at your own pace and as and when your working day allows. Your licence is valid for 12 months from date of purchase and you can revisit the course material as often as you wish to refresh your memory or for reference purposes.

The training is presented in a linear fashion which guides you through each section in turn. Each sub-section needs to be completed before moving onto the next. Once the training has been completed you can revisit the module and drop in and out of any section, in any order, as you wish.

At the end of the course is a test of your knowledge via randomly selected questions designed to be of relevance to barristers and the Chambers environment. Attaining a pass mark of 75% or more will gain access to a training certificate which you can download and print for your records.
