Online Training Launch





After 8 months of designing, writing and testing with the industry, TODAY will see the soft launch of our one-hour Equality and Diversity online training. The training released today is split into three sections: – legal; benefits; and what you can do.  It is aimed at informing employees about the benefits of fairness, inclusion and respect in the workplace as well as engaging them with this agenda which will encourage them to see it as an important part of their role within their organisation.

Once again, we would like to offer our thanks to the companies and people that tested the product as well as those who took time to offer their feedback which has helped us to develop a product that is right for the industry. So thank you to Robertson, BAM, BAM Nuttall, CITB, Miller, Galliford Try, Vinci, CECA, CECA Members, CIC, Seddons, Wates, Bell GroupHochtief Murphy Joint Venture, Volkerstevin, NFB, Shepherds, ISG, Jackson Civils, Volker Fitzpatrick, Costain, Morgan Sindall, Volkerwessels, Balfour Beatty, Owen Pugh, The Clancy Group, Alun Griffiths, Crossrail, E C Harris, Select Plant Hire, Taylor Wimpey and Graham

Industry Feedback from our Construction Specific Online Equality Training

Over the course of this month we’ve been gearing up for the launch of our online learning. The courses are written, and they have a content that is not only highly informative but also interactive and engaging.

But how can we be sure? The only way to tell was to send out samples to companies from the construction industry and ask them to test it for us, and send in feedback. We sent our samples to leading industry organisations including BAM, Costain, HochtiefMurphy Joint Venture, Seddon, Shepherd, Robertson, CIC, CITB and Miller.


100% of testers said that: The objectives were clearly outlined and met, The content was informative and useful, The presentation had the right level of interactivity, There were enough resources supplied and they all liked us presenting it.

The respondents also commented that the construction industry focus was very useful, as the training addressed the specific challenges faced by the sector. They also pointed out that they felt the training was engaging for the potential audience, and that the interactive aspects were good. The clarity of presentation was highlighted as a strong point, with the information we were conveying being concise and thorough.

There were a few technical issues brought to our attention, but they have now been remedied.
