Event description
This session will aim provide an introduction into how schools can support the needs of LGBTQI+ children and young people.

About this Event

Maximum of 3 attendees per setting - if you would like training delivered to all staff at your setting, please get in touch: http://www.educationalpsychologywolverhampton.co.uk/

This is a free session offered by the Educational Psychology Service. The Educational Psychology Service applies psychological theory and research to problems and complex situations, and helps to meet a wide range of child and adolescent developmental needs, including special educational needs.

Research suggests that LGBTQI+ young people are more at risk of being bullied, and experience a greater risk of school dropout, social isolation, mental health difficulties and suicide. 80% of transgender adults were aware they were transgender before they left primary school, suggesting a need for staff in both primary and secondary school settings to have awareness of gender identity and potential issues faced by individuals who identify as transgender.

Who is the course for?

Relevant to all teaching and non-teaching staff. It is also relevant to non-school staff who have a direct role working with children and young people.

Free cancellation up until 48 hours before the event. If you cancel after this time your setting will be charged £30.

As this training is funded through Wolverhampton HeadStart, priority is given to those working in Wolverhampton or supporting children, young people and their families within Wolverhampton. If you work outside Wolverhampton and are interested in any of our sessions we may be able to offer you places if we are not fully booked or we may be able to provide the training for you however this would be charged. Please contact us to discuss.
