Gender and identity 

February 28, 2019


Why should you attend?

Educate & Celebrate surveys report that 44% of schools contact them initially because staff are not confident in dealing with or teaching about sexual orientation and gender identity. We’d like to address this by providing this specific training to help address the 48% of young trans people under 26 who attempt suicide (PACE) and the 83% of students who overhear discriminatory language every day in school (E&C), yet moreover to create a safe educational environment free from discrimination for all students and staff.

The workshop will explore how we engage all stakeholders in the process of institutional change to ensure our LGBT+ community is represented and visible. Elly will ally any fears and answer questions or concerns you may have regarding potential boundaries to LGBT+ inclusion along with demonstrating pedagogies, strategies and a plethora of practical resources which you can begin implementing the very next day.


Programme outline:

  • How to develop and adhere to government and school policies
  • How to implement an LGBT+ inclusive curriculum
  • Research, data and successful strategies to create positive institutional change
  • Increasing visibility in the boarding school environment and engaging the community and empowering young people
