Centre for LGBTQ+ Inclusion in Education

The Centre is committed to challenging all forms of prejudice, discrimination and marginalisation towards individuals and collectives in schools and colleges who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer/ Questioning and others who have gender identities or sexual orientations that differ from the heterosexual and cisgender majority. Through our research we provide evidence-based recommendations to support the development of LGBTQ inclusion in education. Our research enables us to better understand the experiences of LGBTQ+ people in educational institutions, including the experiences of children, young people and staff and provide voice and agency to those who have been marginalised.

Through our research informed professional learning, and the production of research informed resources we seek to transform the cultures of educational institutions so that individuals who identify as LGBTQ+ can experience a sense of belonging through a positive affirmation of difference.

Our work focuses on:
  • Providing support and guidance for schools with our research informed suite of professional learning programmes
  • Developing teaching resources to tackle LGBTQ+ Inclusion in schools and society.
  • Supporting Schools to develop through working towards the LGBTQ+ Inclusion in Education Award
  • Annual conference to profile innovative and proven work, deepen understanding and support the link between policy and practice.
  • Collaboration with strategic partners to develop provision and support for schools.
