Event description
Does your school provide an inclusive and supportive environment for your Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans and Questioning (LGBTQ+) students?

About this event

Wolverhampton HeadStart has commissioned X2Y LGBT Youth Group to deliver their acclaimed Train the Trainer one day session on LGBTQ+ Awareness to all Wolverhampton secondary schools. Two places are available free to each secondary school in Wolverhampton. Please note this is a repeat of the Train the Trainer day on 26th November so don't book into both.

The Train the Trainer programme aims to equip participants to train their colleagues to feel more confident and better equipped to support LGBTQ+ young people, including to:

• promote LGBT equality in line with legislation and Ofsted expectations

• challenge language and behaviour that is Homophobic Bi-phobic or Transphobic (HBT)

• understand issues that affect LGBTQ+ young people

• increase awareness of gender diversity and trans people

• signpost LGBTQ+ young people to specialist local services.

We recommend that schools send 2 people to the Train the Trainer session, so they can work together to cascade training to colleagues. The Train the Trainer programme is free and a comprehensive training pack for each school is provided, containing all the resources they will need to deliver their own LGBTQ+ awareness training to colleagues.
