Low Cost - In order to cover the costs of our training provision, we charge the low price of £25 per delegate.

Introduction to Working with Religious Diversity

Course Content

In this short course, delegates will improve their confidence in discussing and responding to the religion and belief of those they work with.  We explore guiding principles behind working with religion and belief diversity. Then we take a closer look at the core beliefs and cultural practices of Islam, Sikhism and Judaism. Finally we consider where unintentional discrimination may occur in organisations, and what we can do to tackle it.

  • Introduction to the topic.  Do you choose your religion?
  • Religion and belief as a Protected Characteristic. How does it compare to race, age, disability etc?
  • Core beliefs and cultural practices of three significant minority religions in Scotland – Islam, Judaism and Sikhism
  • Responding to individual needs. This is a chance for delegates to discuss the impact of religion and belief on their own working role. For example: challenges around dietary needs and fasting; religious clothing and symbols; or religious festivals.

Who Is The Course For?

The training is intended for anyone whose work brings them into contact with people from a range of religion and belief identities - whether service users, customers or colleagues.  Of course, those who wish to attend because of a general interest in the topic are also very welcome!

Please get in touch if you have any access needs or want to discuss the course.
