Event description

Description

We deliver relaxed, fun and interactive sessions that will take you on the journey to LGBT+Inclusion, developing subject knowledge and strategies for whole-school change by focusing on the core areas of Training, Policy, Curriculum, Environment and Community, covering RSE and all subject areas throughout the curriculum.

The practical and teacher-friendly training is designed to give you the confidence to lead the initiative within your own school, underpinned by relevant reading books at all key stages, research materials, lesson plans in all subject areas, key messages via display, sing-a-long songs, teaching pedagogies, impact day activities, exemplar policies and an action plan to take forward and start delivering the very next day!

Key learning points:

To develop a deeper understanding of gender, gender identity and sexual orientation and why it is necessary to include these protected characteristics in the curriculum and what we need to do to ensure their full inclusion and equilibrium with other equality strands.

This comes initially in the session through exploring the Educate & Celebrate ethos of interrogating heteronormativity, encouraging intersectionality through the pedagogy of ‘usualising’ with a view to reaching the land of social justice where we are all treated equally and fairly.

This is supported through real life examples from our partner schools and colleges, through films, exemplar lessons, language, law, Ofsted criteria and expectations, examples of environmental changes and community events.

Delegates are encouraged throughout to think where in their day to day school life this work would best fit and are encouraged to write down these thoughts on an action plan as we go through the session.

All attendees should leave with increased subject and LGBT+ knowledge, an ethos to continue to explore in their schools and an action plan of quick wins and long term sustainable strategies to ensure LGBT+Inclusion.
