CALD cultural competency courses

eCALD offers a range of face-to-face and online courses for both caring for culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) patients from Asian, Middle Eastern and African backgrounds, as well as for working in culturally diverse workplaces.

A most useful addition to the CALD learning material

A most useful addition to the CALD learning material. A valuable resource and then I shall recommend to as many people as possible

Online learner (Module 7 Working with religious diversity)

Thoroughly designed online training course

This is a thoroughly designed training course for interpreters which covers a lot of practical issues that we have met during the practice. We may not need or have the opportunity to apply all the things we have learnt in this course in our practice, but with the awareness, it will make interpreters feel more of control of our job. It also gives us more confidence to do our job better, and our communications with the health practitioners [HPs] and patients will be smoother.

Interpreter (Module 201 Interpreting remotely in the healthcare setting)

Another excellent course from the eCALD team

Another excellent course from the eCALD team, I have attended others which were face to face but this was the first online course. I am grateful to have been able to complete this at my own pace and in small chunks. Will certainly recommend to colleagues. The variety of scenarios, reading, questions, reflection all helped to make the course more enjoyable from an online learning perspective.

It [the online course'] felt novel and different from other online modules I have done. Interesting and engaging graphics and [the online content is] presented [in] different ways of learning.
