Event description

Description

The Time For Inclusive Education (TIE) campaign are delighted to be offering this teacher training course, which will have specific sessions on LGBTI+ issues covering the primary, secondary and additional support needs educational sectors. This event is free of charge, and all teaching staff - practicing, probationary and trainee - are welcome to attend. Lunch will be provided on site.

With Guest Speakers - Aamer Anwar (Human Rights Lawyer), Patrick Harvie (Scottish Greens MSP), The Very Reverend Kelvin Holdsworth (Scottish Episcopal Church)

Sessions - choose one during sign up which is relevant to your specific area of teaching. All sessions will be running at the same time as each other, so it is not possible to attend more than one at the one time.

  • Celebrating Difference in the Primary School: Tackling LGBT issues for our children & families - Scott Mowat
    Intended Outcomes: "With an increased focus on Equality as part of the teacher and school remit, and LGBT issues continually at the forefront of the media, this course will offer practical advice on dealing with LGBT issues sensitively within the primary school. With 'How Good is Our School 4' focusing on equality and wellbeing (Quality Indicator 3.1 - Ensuring wellbeing, equality and inclusion), schools need to ensure that they are challenging all forms of discrimination - including homo/bi/transphobia. This course will provide teachers with a secure understanding of current LGBT issues in Scottish Education, including homo/bi/transphobic bullying. During the session, teachers will develop strategies to tackle bullying; support pupils and families, and address LGBT issues in the classroom. The course is interactive - there is a particular focus on delegates sharing their experiences with each other and learning from best practice. Guidance on where to access appropriate materials which can be used across all stages of the nursery and primary school will be provided."

  • Checklist for LGBT curriculum inclusion in Secondary Education - John-Naples Campbell
    Intended Outcomes: "This session looks at how we make our curriculum truly inclusive and fit for the 21st century. Looking at the Junior and Senior Phase curriculum, we will map where we feel we can highlight LGBT inclusion; find ways to engage young people, and ensure that when looking at LGBT education, we are moving away from the connection of 'sex and relationships education'.

    By the end of this session attendees will:

    - Have more confidence in raising the profile of equality within their schools
    - Be able to examine how the Equality Act 2010 impacts on their school community
    - Have strategies in supporting the LGBT community within their schools
    - Begin to look at how to map E&Os in their own curriculum to include LGBT heritage, culture or history

  • Getting It Right For Every Child: LGBT education & Additional Support Needs - Danielle Campbell*
    Intended Outcomes: "This session will build confidence in discussing LGBT issues with pupils with ASN. It will be breaking things down into the basic/experiential level. It is important for the young people to feel confident to speak freely, so we will discuss how to organise the pre-session chat and the use of other forms of communication. We will discuss tips on how to create and adapt sessions for pupils with varying needs - which will be stage appropriate as opposed to age appropriate.

    By the end of this session attendees will:

    - Know how to cover E&Os at an experiential level
    - Have the confidence to discuss LGBT with pupils with ASN
    - Have the tools to support pupils, such as boardmaker symbols, visuals etc
    - Know how to set up a session: some pupils will need support pre, during & after (transition stages)
    - Have contacts for services who can provide relevant support or workshops

All attendees will be provided with TIE resources and educational materials during the event.
