Expert Equality Guidance


I am passionate about equality

I am a disabled person from a black and minority ethnic background, and an E&D consultant with fifteen years of experience as a trainer and specialist adviser. I spent twelve years as an academic at the Universities of Oxford, York and Surrey and have written seminal works on the experience of BME disabled people and social care.


As a trainer, I have run disability and E&D training courses for Public Sector organisations such as the NHS, the Department of Health and Social Care, numerous Local Authorities, Universities and voluntary sector organisations. Since 2013, I have also run the Calibre Leadership Programmes for disabled staff at a number of Universities and NHS Trusts.

Equality and Diversity Training

Whether it is disability or diversity training, my clients are my number one priority, and I always ensure that my training will ensure compliance, good practice and increased confidence. Have a specific E&D training project that requires expert attention? My services are designed to tackle even the most challenging projects. Contact me today to discover how I can help.


The Calibre Leadership programme is a unique course for disabled staff in Higher Education, the NHS and wider public sector. It is unique because it addresses the problems disabled staff face in the workplace as well as enables organisations to better support them. Each programme is a bespoke design, tailored specifically for each client and their employees.


Personal Assistant Training

I have delivered A Personal Assistant (PA) training to PA employers, social workers and prospective PA's themselves. A PA is a new kind of care worker. Their role is to support their service using employer to live the life they choose through enhancing choice and control. It is a role that requires specific training. As a employer of PA's for more than thirty years, I have a uniquely clear understanding of the PA role and what it takes to be the best PA and employer. Contact me today to discover how I can help.


Great Feedback

“Ossie, thanks very much for your time and effort last week. I feel your presence and input helped all involved gain a clearer overview of where we are now and where we need to be in the future.”

"Ossie you definitely entitled to boast! Calibre has helped to give me confidence to look at things from different perspective! Thank you.

Lisa: North East London Foundation Trust

“Ossie I do feel I've come along way from learning more about myself and I now see my work differently and where I'd like to go in employment and in life. It has been a joy studying the concepts of Calibre and particularly my 'Personal Project', I learnt more than I could of hoped. (I can't thank you enough for the trans-formative effect this and other actions in my life have had no me.) .”

Ian: University of Nottingham
