The beliefs, knowledge, understanding and/or teaching practices this programme aims to address

  • Sharing the lived educational experience of LGBT+ gender diverse people.
  • Becoming conscious of the additional barriers gender diverse young people may face in schools.
  • Becoming conscious of the historical and current statutory guidance and legislation in relation to supporting gender diverse people.
  • Building confidence through exploring the developing language around gender identity and expression.
  • Exploring the distinction between sex, gender identity, and gender expression.
  • Building confidence and competence in supporting trans young people as they come out in an educational space.
  • Growing confidence and competence in challenging transphobic language.
  • Developing competence in reimagining our educational spaces, and making them more diverse, equitable, and inclusive of gender diverse people

Intended Impact on practice:

We support teachers, leaders and student support professionals in schools and trusts, in developing their consciousness, confidence and competence in furthering LGBT+ inclusion in your educational space with a greater understanding of gender diversity.

We will create a safe space for you to explore how to reimagine our educational spaces as more diverse, equitable, and inclusive for trans, non-binary, and gender diverse people.

Intended improvement and/or evaluation of impact for pupils, including those with SEND and/or disadvantaged backgrounds:

Through focusing on DEI in schools all pupils feel valued and belong. In turn this leads to:

  • Better preparing pupils for life in the modern world
  • Improved mental health and well-being
  • Improved achievement for all pupils
