Challenge prejudice-based bullying in schools and promote lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality.
In order to tackle Homophbic, Biphobic and Transphobic HBT bullying it’s more important than ever to ensure staff are properly trained. This training will equip teachers to feel more confident providing affirmative and accurate representations of gay, bisexual and transgender lives in their classroom.
The training consists of two elements
