Managing Diversity focuses on an understanding of diversity and its impact on service delivery for social care. It explores understandings and meanings related to the concept of diversity, and to anti-oppressive, anti-racist and anti-discriminatory practice. The module examines the working context of diversity awareness in service delivery, and in organisational and team culture - which is pivotal in influencing service delivery. The module addresses priorities for management of diversity through consideration of national and local policy documents together with key legislation informing an understanding of diversity in action. It also draws on theoretical and evidence-led research and theory, which informs an understanding of diversity management, connecting with the knowledge and understanding requirement of the relevant management occupational standards. At this postgraduate level, the module teaching aims to equip students with the capacity to critically analyse the scope of diversity as it encompasses their role as first line managers. It also aims to equip students to critically evaluate concepts of competence in managing service delivery within and for diverse communities. It equips them to demonstrate their own competence through the ability to analyse and critically evaluate their own and others' practice and generate solutions which are evidence-led and research informed.
