Introduction to Equality and Diversity Training (Toolkit)

The Introduction to Equality and Diversity course has been developed by members of the Bar Council Equality and Diversity Committee as a practical aid to chambers. The session aims to raise diversity awareness through a series of practical case studies drawn from the experience of applying equality and diversity policies in chambers plus a summary of the legal and regulatory duties.  It is designed for barristers, chambers' Equality and Diversity Officers, practice managers and clerks.

The training carries 1.5 CPD  and sessions are run on a monthly basis.

Advanced Equality and Diversity Training for EDO's and Chambers' Managers 

Advanced Equality and Diversity training has been developed for those with (i) a management role in chambers; and (ii) EDOs/those with responsibility for implementing the BSB's Equality and Diversity rules.

This course is specifically designed to enable chambers to comply with guidance on EDOs (page 13, para 13 - BSB Equality Rules Handbook) which requires EDOs to be trained in E&D - please click  here for more information.

Based on a deep understanding of how chambers work in practice, Advanced E&D training goes further than simply showing you how to comply with the E&D rules by explaining their purpose and their role in good chambers' management. As part of the course you will explore genuine E&D challenges in a chambers context. A basic understanding of E&D is assumed.

Once you have completed this course you should have:

  • a clear understanding of the BSB's rules

  • skills in dealing with E&D issues in chambers

  • a clearer idea of your own role in promoting E&D in chambers; and

  • knowledge of the opportunity a greater understanding of E&D presents for good chambers management.
