Level 2 NCFE Certificate in Equality and Diversity
|Mode of study||Distance Learning|
|Course code||PLR2ODL030 (2122)|
Who is it for?
The course is suitable for a wide range of learners, including those who are already in work to support their continuous professional development, or those seeking employment. It’s also ideal for those who are looking to develop an awareness of issues surrounding equality and diversity, for their own personal development.
There are no specific recommended prior learning requirements for these qualifications; however, candidates may find it beneficial if they have already achieved a Level 1 qualification. Good numeracy and literacy skills are also advantageous.
What does the course involve?
This course will help to raise awareness of discrimination, prejudice, stereotyping, and individual freedoms and rights. In doing so, it will promote learners’ understanding of what it means to live in a diverse society and the laws that are in place to prevent unjust behaviour. This will be beneficial not only to the learners themselves but also to their employers and the wider society. The course comprises three mandatory units arranged into two modules:
- Unit 01 Equality and diversity in society
- Unit 02 Equality and diversity in the community
- Unit 03 Equality and diversity in the workplace

How to enrol on a Distance Learning course
A Level Business (Economics, Statistics)
Previous school: Thomas Adams School
The teachers are engaging at SCG and I really enjoy the lessons – they are well taught. I have enjoyed learning about finance and also how Twitter can be used in national and international business. Over the Summer I successfully gained an Internship with the JP Morgan Think Ahead Program.
Level 3 Extended Diploma in Business
Previous school: Shrewsbury Academy
I wasn’t sure about going away to university, so when I learnt about the HND in Business at SCG I was so pleased I could study locally and stay at home. I will be able to keep my part-time job and I am already familiar with the teachers. After the HND I plan to do a top-up year at university to gain a full degree.
Business, English Literature and Sociology
Previous school: Priory School, Shrewsbury
Business is a very interactive course and has really helped with the skills you need to use in a business environment. I am going to university in Liverpool to do Business Management after College.
HNC in Business
The HNC has provided me with a thorough understanding of business fundamentals, which I have been able to translate into my working life as a Marketing Executive. Having started in this career less than two years ago as an entry level Communications Coordinator, I have already received a promotion and have undertaken increased levels of responsibility.
Level 3 Extended Diploma in Business
Previous school: Ercall Wood School
I originally took this course as an all-rounder as I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do after college, however I have really enjoyed the course and am looking at a career in business more seriously now. I am considering going onto the HND course to further my knowledge. Doing the HND at SCG will mean I know other students and have a rapport with the teachers, will not have far to travel and it will cost me a lot less than at university.
