Learners studying the Level 3 and 4 Diploma in Adult Care are predominately leaders, managers, supervisors or senior members of staff. Therefore, in addition to understanding the importance of equality and inclusion, it is essential that you can model it to others in your day-to-day work and support others to promote it in theirs.


There are several ways that you can do this.

Having a good knowledge of your organisation’s agreed ways of working, policies and procedures means that you will be in a prime position to answer any queries that less-experienced staff come to you with. And if you are not sure of the answer, you should have a network of support that can be of assistance.


Being a good role model for inclusive practice means taking a person-centred approach and ensuring an individual is involved in as many aspects of their care as possible. When discussing an individual’s care and support with others you should ensure that, where appropriate, you bring the individual into the discussion rather than talking about them without their involvement. By doing this other employees will (hopefully) follow your lead and do this in their own practice.

You can use reflective practice to demonstrate to other staff how you believe that, on reflection, an action or process could be improved.


You may have associations or memberships with outside groups or agencies that are related to equality, diversity and inclusion.

You could be involved in promoting opportunities that support inclusion – perhaps you run a group activity that encourages and welcomes participation from a wide range of individuals with different levels and abilities. Some organisations appoint an Equality Champion, whose role is to promote equality, diversity and inclusion within the workplace.


In summary, you should ensure that you are a positive ambassador for the promotion of equality, diversity and inclusion in the workplace and be able to provide support to others. You should also demonstrate professional conduct and leadership at all times, which can include valuing the contributions of all team members, not engaging in gossip and making sure everybody feels appreciated.
