Our Growing Trans and Non-Binary Awareness Training

Our Training Offer

We support teachers, leaders and student support professionals in schools and trusts, in developing their consciousness, confidence and competence in furthering LGBT+ inclusion in your educational space with a greater understanding of gender diversity.

We can deliver face to face and virtually, for twilights, INSETs and conferences.

We will create a safe space for you to explore how to reimagine our educational spaces as more diverse, equitable, and inclusive for trans, non-binary, and gender diverse people.

Our training sessions include:
  • Sharing the lived educational experience of LGBT+ gender diverse people.
  • Becoming conscious of the additional barriers gender diverse young people may face in schools.
  • Becoming conscious of the historical and current statutory guidance and legislation in relation to supporting gender diverse people.
  • Building confidence through exploring the developing language around gender identity and expression.
  • Exploring the distinction between sex, gender identity, and gender expression.
  • Building confidence and competence in supporting trans young people as they come out in an educational space.
  • Growing confidence and competence in challenging transphobic language.
  • Developing competence in reimagining our educational spaces, and making them more diverse, equitable, and inclusive of gender diverse people.

We regularly use DiverseEd to upskill and empower out trainees. the sessions are informative, well planned and really useful for our trainees.
