Plymouth and Devon Racial Equality

How we train

We promote and disseminate excellent anti racist work within our region through the provision of bespoke interactive training, covering issues such as cultural awareness, the effects of racism, race equality legislation, reducing prejudice and the needs of BME communities.

Our training aims to engage participants, using a range of media, from presentations, informal discussions, quizzes, case studies and group work. Our style is underpinned by our value base ensuring that we conduct our training in a safe and respectful environment, encouraging debate and discussion, enabling people to tackle very difficult and sensitive issues

Who we train

PDREC staff and management continue to provide high quality training to partner statutory agencies and members from other voluntary organisations. These include schools and colleges, Devon and Plymouth PCTs, Devon and Cornwall Constabulary, Housing Providers, District and Parish Councils, Marjons, Exeter and Plymouth University, Magistrates, support workers and foster carers,

Each training course is tailored specifically for the recipients and we regularly update our materials and resources accordingly.


Our training is aimed at staff throughout the hierarchy of different organisations, and can be tailored towards the needs of management or frontline staff. We aim to enhance policies, practices and services to make them more appropriate and culturally competent for BME people living and working in our locality.

We also aim to encourage people to enhance their personal understanding of racism and prejudice, and to expand their knowledge of BME specific issues. The training is designed to provide tools and methods to combat racism, ignorance, stereotyping and misunderstanding.


Prices vary according to the type and length of session required. Please contact us to discuss your training needs.
