All your immediate questions answered 

How will I be assessed in this course? 

We have included a few quizzes, interactive puzzles, and targeted content questions to ensure you are absorbing the course content. However, we do not believe in exam style courses. We believe in awareness which will lead to behavioural and habitual change. As such, how you approach this course will be down to you.  

Learn through practice.   

What is CandidateX Inclusive Recruiter e-Learning?

It has been developed through collaboration with talent acquisition specialists, diversity and inclusion experts and learning and development professionals. In keeping with the CandidateX company value of being a Better Human and our mission to create equal access to opportunity for underestimated talent we developed the first course in our e-Learning series. We believe in the impact this programme will have for the daily interactions for all talent professionals and those involved in the hiring process. 

We already use a Learning Management Solution (LMS), is this course compatible?

If your organisation is currently using a Learning Management System (LMS) we can send you the course to be accessed there. Your LMS must access SCORM 1.2 files. (SCORM files are shareable content file types and 1.2 is the most popular SCORM file type). We are on hand to answer any questions on this here

If your organisation does not have an LMS, no problem! We will provide access to complete the e-Learning directly via the learner’s email.

All learners are registered using their email. This enables CandidateX to track progress of your learners for completion. All learners who complete the course will be provided with their individual accreditation directly to their emails. 


Will this course be updated in the future?

Yes, we plan to update this course, but we have a lot more planned besides, as we continue to deliver a roadmap of impactful and engaging inclusion-centred learning.

Can I get a refund if I decide not to continue with the course?

Sure, we are fully compliant with the Consumer act 2015 (distance selling) and you may cancel your order within a period of 14 working days commencing the day following contract completion, and which you will be notified of through an order confirmation email from us.

However, if any learner in your organisation has started the course, you will no longer be entitled to a full refund for that learner, and we will deduct the full price per learner who has accessed the course from your refund.

If we have issued your learners with an enrolment email to the course during those 14 days, but they haven't accessed it during the 14 day period, we will refund you the full amount of your order minus £5 per learner for the issuance of those credentials.

If we have issued you with a SCORM file to integrate to your LMS, you must delete it upon exercising your cancellation rights. We do monitor access to our e-learning course and you would be in breach of your contractual obligations should you not comply with our terms.

How long is the ‘Becoming an Inclusive Recruiter Essentials’ badge valid for?

We plan to update this course yearly, but you can proudly display the badge for a maximum of 3 years before requiring a refresher. 

Do I receive a certificate or credential upon completing this course?

Each learner will earn individual inclusion training CandidateX credentials, recorded on blockchain technology. We will provide you with a social media toolkit so you can showcase your award directly onto your LinkedIn profile and beyond.

Yes, absolutely! The course has been developed with this in mind. You can access on any device.

  • I was shocked to learn how many biases can occur in the hiring process, from job posting and application review to the interview and selection phases.

    This excellent e-Learning program really ensures that hiring decisions are not influenced by prejudices, stereotypes, or assumptions.

    I loved it: As a person with a different background I consider that having diversity and equality in the work space is very important. 

    I loved that through CandidateX we get to explore and learn more about diverse workspaces.

    After completing CandidateX e-Learning, I can honestly say I'm a better version of myself both professionally and personally. Through this training I realized how many different types of bias things there are and best practices to break the cycle.

    I found CandidateX e-Learning to be very informative and insightful. As a BIPOC recruiter, the course helped me discover inclusive practices I was not previously aware of and uncover unconscious biases that exist in our industry. I will definitely be using this training on a daily basis!

    This is an excellent training initiative very comprehensive and covers most of the things with respect to DE&I in recruiting.
    A very comprehensive, interactive and offers a very practical approach to inclusive recruiting. 

    The founders shared their own stories which were very compelling. Great practical and real life scenarios with very good examples. It has helped me identify my unconscious biases in recruiting. 

    I only wish I had this trainings years back. Thank You
