As long serving teachers, we love working with trainees. We are fully equipped to answer questions about the teaching profession and deliver webinars on inclusion for all key stages

' 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 

Examples of current webinars are:

  • An introduction to gender identity and sexual orientation – law, policy, inclusive language and the impact this has on school life 
  • Environment and Curriculum Focus – exploring resources for all subject areas at all key stages. Exemplar lessons and assemblies
  • How to integrate LGBT+ content into the whole curriculum: for nursery, primary and secondary teachers

Please fill in the form below and we will be in touch to make further arrangements with you!

We regularly partner with Universities and Initial Teacher Training 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!


' A wonderful session with great ideas to take forward into school and classroom 
I am much more aware of the legal obligations, however I am slightly more worried about getting the language wrong or making LGBT+ inclusive in my teaching. 
This was an amazing session, so moving and powerful. Really enjoyed it and would love to participate in more sessions in the future. '

South Birmingham SCITT  ITT Course Manager, Emma Thomas and trainee teachers talk about the skills, knowledge and confidence they now have after training with E&C




' I didn't realise how little I knew on the different terminology used so thank you for that. Amazing session - Thank you so much '




' Thank you so much for today, you have created legitimacy and firmly put LGBT+ within our ITT curriculum as well as numerous primary schools within Suffolk and Norfolk! '



' It was so nice to have someone talk on a topic that they were obviously enthusiastic and positive about, it really does make such a difference to a training session. In fact, it was so positive it never felt like training.'



' It never would have occurred to me before this training to make sure it was discussed in lessons, but your talk gave the knowledge and the confidence to have these discussions, so thank you.'
