Who are the Consortium?
The Consortium brings together several key organisations with complementary specialisms working together to deliver a comprehensive training and development programme to support the implementation of the new Discrimination Ordinance for The Committee for Employment & Social Security. Together we provide a breadth of experience and discrimination expertise which will ensure the training and development sessions are purposeful, rich in content, and meet the requirements of The States of Guernsey, through the Committee for Employment and Social Security to support the implementation of the new Discrimination Ordinance.
The Joint Partners strongly believe that this offering will be relevant and appeal to all industry and community sectors, by hosting this training at the Princess Royal Centre for Performing Arts and online we can ensure the offering is accessible to all through the variety of training methods offered.
The Guernsey Institute will take the lead in facilitating, organising and the administration of all the training including venue organisation, and managing bookings for you our participants.
Walkers will take the lead in the creation and delivery of all legal aspects related to the new Discrimination Ordinance and will be a lead on each of the training elements.
The Lead Partners will be working collaboratively with a number of other supporting organisations as the Consortium. These partners include; Equality Guernsey; Guernsey Employment Trust and Focus HR.
These supporting organisations provide their specialist expertise in respect of the new protected characteristics and also in areas such as reasonable adjustments and accessibility. They bring an essential source of knowledge and skill to assist in developing case studies or examples of lived experience.
The Consortium is delivering a wide range of training options ensuring employers and service providers (including providers of goods and services, accommodation, education, hospitality, religious organisations and clubs and associations) have the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the requirements of the new discrimination legislation at an appropriate level. Training sessions are scheduled at various times to enable attendees to choose the most appropriate time to attend. Morning daytime and evening sessions will be available for all courses. In addition, webinar training sessions will also be provided.
