Training in Equality and Diversity Issues
The previous face-to-face session 'TMS9 Training in Equality and Diversity Issues' (TEDI) has been replaced by 2 online modules:
Diversity in The Workplace
Unconscious Bias 
For those colleagues who have attended TMS9 there is no requirement to undertake the two on-line modules, however we would encourage colleagues to complete the modules as they offer an opportunity for enhancing learning in this important topic. For those colleagues who have already completed the two on-line modules since January 2017 there is no requirement to repeat them. These courses are mandatory for any colleagues that are involved in recruitment at any level.


CUBIAS17: Unconscious Bias
Colleagues taking part in an academic promotion committee or a recruitment panel are required to undertake this on-line module. This module will provide colleagues with a greater understanding of unconscious bias and how biases can be formed.

Diversity in The Work Place
Colleagues taking part in an academic promotion committee or a recruitment panel are required to undertake this on-line module. This module aims to provide colleagues with an opportunity to familiarise themselves with equalities legislation; gain an understanding of the broader issues of equality and diversity; to know their responsibilities and rights as a member of staff at the University.
