Event description


Young people consistently say they want more opportunities to talk about sexual orientation and gender identity in the classroom. An LGBT-inclusive approach to SRE is vital for addressing prejudice and for ensuring that RSE meets the needs of all children and young people.

RSE will be statutory in all schools from September 2019 and DfE have indicated that it must be inclusive, in line with the Equality Act. This one-day training equips participants with the skills and confidence to deliver an RSE curriculum that is positively inclusive of LGBT identities and relationships. Participants will explore how an LGBT-inclusive approach will help to meet new statutory requirements, equalities duties, safeguarding and prepare for Ofsted. The approach is interactive, with opportunities to trial, evaluate and adapt resources for your school.

Training outcomes

  • Clear knowledge of new legislation, Ofsted requirements and equalities duties
  • Confidence to use key terms and appropriate language in the classroom
  • Awareness of a range of resources for support teaching about human sexuality, gender identity and diverse relationships
  • Practical understanding of how to update existing materials, policies and approaches
  • Strategies for responding to concerns from teachers, parents and the wider community

Supported by an eLearning short course: Introduction to LGBT-inclusive RSE

Share learning with colleagues with our accompanying eLearning course. This 40-minute course is free to all participants and helps to cascade learning across the staff group.

What participants say

“Absolutely brilliant about raising issues that need to be raised”

“Your knowledge and personable approach has enabled me to access a wealth of ideas, resources to take away and use”

“I feel a lot more confident and passionate that it needs to be included in my teaching. I know that it’s right and it isn’t too difficult to achieve”


What's the refund policy?

Training is free to attend, but this is conditional upon attendees completing a baseline evaluation survey in advance. If it is not completed, attendance at the session will be charged. In the event that a different staff member attends on the day (e.g. due to illness), we will do our best to make provision for them to complete it before the session starts.

Why do I have to complete an evaluation before I attend?

The Learn Equality, Live Equal programme is funded by the Department for Education, who have commissioned Sheffield Hallam University (SHU) to carry out a thorough, independent evaluation of its effectiveness. The results of the evaulation will help the government, schools and the sector understand more about how schools can best tackle homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying. Staff attending training must complete a baseline survey before attending training and a follow-up survey approximately 3-6 months afterwards.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?


Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

Yes, although please try to let us know in advance, as this will help us with keeping accurate records.

Will lunch and refreshments be provided?

Although teas and coffees will be available, lunch is not provided as part of this course. Please bring a packed lunch.

Is there parking?

There is a car park available at the venue.
