Cultural Awareness Training

Is it needed?

Asians form a major part of those who came to Britain in the wake of post-war immigration. The growth of Asian communities in Britain’s urban areas has presented professionals with a unique challenge. General lack of knowledge and understanding about their religion and cultural is often a source of tension and misunderstanding.

In today’s competitive and sensitive world it is vital that professionals working with Asians or providing services for them are equipped with awareness training in order to be effective. It can save much time and money often wasted in misdirected and unsuitable programmes. Cultural Awareness Training is of particular benefit to those wishing to promote equal their organisation.
