‘It was really good to see the students engaged and challenged by the session, but more importantly starting to feel confident in teaching about LGBTQ+ accurately. The opportunity for student teachers to think deeply about their teaching context and the young people in their care is so important and I know that the student teachers will have taken a lot from this for their continual development’
Dr Sarah Hall Professional Studies Lead at University of Birmingham
We regularly partner with Universities and ITT providers to ensure trainees have the knowledge and confidence to deliver an LGBT+ Inclusive curriculum before they secure posts.
The sessions are relaxed, fun and interactive and empower trainees to firstly recognise discrimination and then go on to develop an intersectional curriculum where all are represented through the language and resources we use.
Trainees will leave with increased knowledge of law and school legislation, lots of curriculum resources including a booklist, lesson plans, posters and songs, display ideas, exemplar policies, how to increase visibility and engage with the school and wider community – plus having all their questions answered openly and honestly!
