All about this LGBTQ+ in Schools Course

This course is aimed at anyone who wants and/or needs to become familiar with the key areas of LGBTQ+ in schools. More specifically, you will be able to examine the importance of promoting LGBTQ+ in schools, LGBTQ+ history and legislation, creating an inclusive environment and supporting LGBTQ+ students.

All LGBTQ+ children and young people deserve an education that reflects who they are. Representing and respecting the diversity around them helps to prepare children and young people for life in society today and contributes to creating a culture where we are more understanding and accepting of others. Without inclusive education, so many LGBTQ+ children and young people and/or those from families with LGBTQ+ family members, can feel isolated, or even unwanted in school.

This course will help you understand the importance of creating an inclusive environment, including how to create an inclusive LGBTQ+ RSHE, the statutory guidance for primary and secondary schools, OFSTED requirements and what to do if you encounter homophobia.

You will also learn how you can best support LGBTQ+ students and their mental health, including trans students, LGBTQ+ SEND students, as well as creating an LGBTQ+ organisation at your school.

In order to complete the course, you must achieve 80% or more in the final multiple choice quiz.

You will earn 3 CPD points on completion of the course, this course will take around 3 hours to complete and the certificate will last for two years.
