On Saturday 25th January, EIS members from all over Scotland gathered at EIS HQ in Edinburgh for a professional learning event on implementing LGBT+ Inclusive Education, under the title Taking Pride in Teaching LGBT+ Young People.
The event was organised following a motion passed at EIS AGM 2019, resolving that the Institute welcome Scottish Government guidance on LGBT+ inclusion and work with key partners to ensure that it is implemented in every school in Scotland.
This builds on the EIS's established role advocating for inclusive education in Scotland over many years, including shaping policy and guidance at the national level.
This event included the following sessions. Please see links for further details.
