Join 100's of schools who have successfully embraced LGBT+ inclusion through our pioneering Award Programme created through research by our CEO, Dr Elly Barnes MBE in 2010

Described as 'innovative and visionary' in 2016 by Ofsted, the celebrated programme is specifically designed for nursery schools, primary schools, secondary schools, sixth forms and colleges.

  • Do you need support with the LGBT+ content of compulsory RSE Sept 2020?
  • Need guidance on how to start developing an LGBT+ inclusive school?

We empower you to embed gender, gender identity and sexual orientation into the fabric of your school through five core areas of Training, Policy, Curriculum, Environment and Community.

Our highly skilled and experienced trainers will support you through the change process. All our trainers have led the Award Programme in their own schools equipping them to share their extensive knowledge and strategies with you.
