about: Improving Diversity Training for SMEs – IDTS was an EU funded programme under the Life Long Learning programme – Leonardo Partnerships- Reference No. : LLP/LdV/MT/PART/02/2009. The duration of the project was 24 months and ended in September, 2011. The coordinators of the project were the Banbridge District Enterprises Ltd, a British organisation. The other partners hailed from Malta, Ireland, Denmark and Romania.

The IDTS partnership had set itself a clear and simple aim: to identify, document and disseminate best practice on diversity training in the workplace. Specifically our partnership sought to uncover and examine diversity training aimed at SMEs, to help employers tackle issues that would make them better placed to hire and train immigrants as a useful part of their workforce.

As well as leading to a documentary analysis of lessons learned and strong dissemination, the project helped to build transnational relationships with a view to future collaborative projects, such as Leonardo da Vinci Transfer of Innovation or SME mobility projects.
