Gender and identity
Date: May 10, 2018
Any member of school staff. This workshop is as relevant to members of the school SMT as it is to pastoral and boarding staff.
Why you should attend?
“While the average secondary school will have enough lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) students to make up two full classes, 90% of primary and secondary teachers and non-teaching staff report having had no training to support LGBT students, according to Stonewall. For many teachers, it can be a struggle to know how best to support students, especially when there are no policies and procedures in place.”
This workshop will explore the many diverse issues associated with students that question their sexuality/identity whilst at school and the practical steps that staff can take to best support them.
Venue: Broadway House, Tothill Street, Westminster, SW1H 9NQ
