Tackling age bias at work

This is now available to preview and download from our Members’ Resource Centre (MRC). A brief overview as follows:

Having an age-diverse workforce enables organisations to draw on a broad mix of ideas, skills and experience while at the same time gaining key insights into the needs of multi-generational customers and service users. Where younger employees might have a strong grasp of new technologies and web-based business media, for example, older staff can bring experience, maturity and vital interpersonal skills – and cross-generational working and mentoring can bring huge benefits for employer and employee alike. 

Containing original drama, expert insight and a range of discussion points and activities, this trainer pack has been designed to support a half-day training session on tackling age bias and discrimination, and looks at how to build an age-inclusive workplace where everyone is able to realise their potential, regardless of their age.

Neurodiversity Webinar – Wednesday, 13 July 2022.

What is neurodiversity?

Neurodiversity is the term that refers to the naturally occurring variation in the way our brains work. It is commonly associated with a series of conditions or differences such as dyslexia, ADHD, dyspraxia, autism and others.


In this webinar, VinciWorks’ Director of Learning Nick Henderson and Skill Boosters’ Content Designer Maurizio Caldera explored some of the many facets of neurodiversity.


Interviews with neurodivergent individuals on their personal experiences. Short scenario clips and interactive polls on what we can do to support neurodivergent people in each example.

The neurodiversity course is currently going through the final post-production stages, but will be ready to preview and download week ending 24 June. In the meantime, please do take the opportunity to preview and download the Lived Experienced videos which are proving very popular to support training in this area.

Inclusive leadership

The signature traits of inclusive leadership and the skills required to become an inclusive manager.


As an ally, we should always be speaking for ourselves rather than speaking for or on behalf of someone else.


We may think that the decisions we’re making about people are fair but our unconscious bias is likely to have an impact without us being aware of it.

Problem behaviour

We may be reluctant to tackle problem behaviour for many different reasons – but avoidance is never the answer.

Recruitment and selection

How we work and the physical nature of the workplace itself are both changing.


An at-a-glance view of the Skill Boosters courses, the relationships between them, and suggested learning journeys.
