Inclusion Learning

We are committed to creating a culture of inclusion, where diversity is recognised, understood, and valued. By providing diversity and inclusion learning and communication programmes, we hope to engage with students and staff on realising the benefits that diversity and inclusion brings.

It is important for learners to refresh their inclusion training and knowledge every few years, as legislation, terminology, and best practice progress regularly. Which is why we have made available inclusion training courses that will be relevant and engaging for all staff, and which will support continuous learning and discussion on these important issues.


Our core inclusion training programmes are:

Warwick Principles and Social Inclusion

This e-learning course communicates your rights and responsibilities as a member of staff at Warwick and how we can create a working and learning environment where everyone feels welcome and safe to be themselves, everyone is treated with dignity and respect, and there is equal opportunity for everyone to reach their full potential. The course will take 45-60 minutes to complete.


This email course is developed by GoodCourse – experts in engaging inclusion training, which is relatable and not overly technical. Staff will receive bite-sized modules throughout the year, so that learning is continuous, not a one off. The four modules cover EDI fundamentals, harassment prevention, conscious inclusion, and micro-aggressions. Each module will take less than 10 minutes to complete.

Advance HE - Introduction to ED&I

This e-learning course created by experts at Advance HE uses true stories from students and staff. The two modules cover 'the basics' (what is discrimination, unacceptable behaviours) and 'beyond the law' (taking action, being an ally). A Personal Learning Journal will help you further reflect on information presented. Each module will take 25-45 minutes to complete.

You can find additional inclusion training, resources, and learning below:


University of Sanctuary Introduction

Do you know the difference between an asylum seeker and a refugee? Are you familar with the UK asylum process? Do you know why people migrate? This module is designed to assist staff and students at Warwick to develop insights into the life of asylum seeker and refugee students in the UK.

Tackling Racial Inequality at Warwick (TRIW)

This university-funded programme is aimed at equipping academic and professional services staff with the knowledge and practical tools to engage with anti-racist practices and pedagogy within and outside the classroom, and to challenge racial inequality at the University of Warwick at both individual and institutional levels.

    Business Disability Forum Knowledge Hub

    As members of the Business Disability Forum, the University has access to their Knowledge Hub - a source authoritative and up to date information to help you understand more about how to be disability inclusive. It includes toolkits, factsheets, case studies, videos, and webinars. Register with your Warwick email address to get a free account.

    Say My Name

    We all want to feel valued and respected, you might not have known that simply taking the time to pronounce others’ names properly can really help to create an inclusive community. In this short course, we explore why our names matter to us, some tips and techniques to help when encountering unfamiliar names, and look at the importance of getting names and pronouns right.

    Queering University

    The Queering University programme supports staff and students to develop, implement, share and sustain queer pedagogies and perspectives through training, events, and a digital library of resources to encourage teaching and learning, pastoral, and other practices that are inclusive of LGBTQUIA+ people in the classroom and wider university settings.

    Community Values Education Programme

    The Community Values Education Programme is dedicated to cultivating a secure and inclusive environment for both students and staff. You can now subscribe to Active Bystander Inbox - 10 bitesize email updates to support your growth as an active bystander, learning how to safely address challenging situations.

    Digital Accessibility at Warwick

    As a public sector institution, we need to make sure that all our digital communications are accessible to everyone. Find out guidance and best practice examples for getting great results. You can also join the Digital Accessibility Network on Teams to discuss these topics further with others.
