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

As part of our ongoing commitment to creating a vibrant and diverse community where everyone can thrive, we have created the Warwick Principles and Social Inclusion course. This course communicates your rights and responsibilities as a member of staff, 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 all to reach their full potential.

GoodCourse Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Fundamentals

Starting at the beginning of the academic year, staff will receive a new programme from GoodCourse – experts in developing engaging inclusion training, which is relatable and not overly technical. This course is made up of four modules, covering EDI fundamentals, harassment prevention, conscious inclusion, and micro-aggressions. Staff will receive this course by email throughout the year, so that learning is continuous, not a one off.

Advance HE Introduction to Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion

This e-learning course is created by experts at Advance HE and uses true stories reflecting experiences of students and staff, read by real students. The course is made up of two modules, one covering 'the basics' (what is discrimination, unacceptable behaviours, why inclusion matters) and the second going 'beyond the law' (taking action, being an ally and an active bystander).

This course will be available soon!

University of Sanctuary Introduction

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. This presentation will take you on an interactive learning journey allowing you to select and explore information a section at a time.

Tackling Racial Inequality at Warwick (TRIW)

This university-funded programme, launched in 2020, 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.

Community Values Education Programme (CVEP)

CVEP's activities and resources help students and staff to develop knowledge, skills, and confidence to create a safe and welcoming community at Warwick. CVEP's Active Bystander Intervention courses equip participants to make safe, effective interventions in response to harmful behaviours - you can now also sign up for Active Bystander Inbox, ten bitesize inbox updates to support your growth as an active bystander.

Digital Accessibility at Warwick

As a public sector institution, we need to make sure that all our digital communications are accessible to everyone, no matter how they navigate webpages, apps, documents, emails or social media. Find out how to make sure everyone can access your communications, and explore best practice for getting great results. You can also join the Digital Accessibility Network on Teams to discuss these topics further with others.
