Preventing Homophobic, Biphobic and Transphobic Bullying
Diversity Role Models https://www.diversityrolemodels.org are running a free CPD event for senior leaders and governors in Waltham Forest on preventing homophobic, biphobic and transphobic (HBT) bullying.
The free two-hour training will include advice and support on:
- Introduction to HBT bullying: What is HBT bullying, how does it differ from other forms of bullying. Who is affected by it and what impact does it have? What are the main obligations for tackling HBT bullying?
- Supporting transgender young people: What does it mean to be a transgender young person and what barriers do they face at school? What additional support do you need to ensure that your school has in place?
- The role of leaders and governors: How can you lead on this work? Which policies should you focus on improving? What questions should you be asking?
- Action planning: What practical steps can you take in your school after the training? Where can you get support to help as you lead on this work?
The interactive training is a wonderful opportunity to connect with other schools, share best practice and address any questions or concerns about tackling HBT bullying in your school.
