Event description

Description

Relationships and sex education can provide a safe learning environment for addressing the causes of homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying in schools. With the right approach, pupils are able to develop an age-appropriate understanding of family diversity, human sexuality and gender identity as well as the wider social issues and influences on attitudes and behaviours that lead to prejudice.

The government have indicated that Relationships Education will be statutory in all primary schools from 2019 and that it must be inclusive. This one-day training equips participants with the skills and confidence to deliver relationships and sex education that is positively inclusive of LGBT identities and relationships. Participants will explore how an LGBT-inclusive approach will help to meet new statutory requirements and ensure that all children and all families feel valued and included. 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 age-appropriate language in the classroom
  • Awareness of a range of tools and approaches to ensure all teaching is inclusive of diverse families and 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 to the staff group.

What participants say:

“I feel a lot more confident, and passionate that this needs to be included in my teaching”

“It’s changed my outlook… I am not just trying to jump through hoops and tick boxes. I actually feel that this is really crucial for the development of a really positive society. It was really powerful stuff”


FAQs

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?

No

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 or money to buy from the onsite cafe.


Is there parking?

There is limited parking available at the venue. Further Pay and Display parking is available in the local area.
