Here we reflect on a professional learning event hosted by EIS on implementing LGBT+ Inclusive Education, under the title Taking Pride in Teaching LGBT+ Young People.

Taking pride on teaching LGBT+ 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.

Workshop “Inclusive Education: Supporting LGBT Young People”, Cat Telford, Stonewall Scotland Empowerment Programmes Officer

Workshop “Creating an LGBT Inclusive Curriculum”, Caitlin Wood, LGBT Youth Scotland Education Capacity Building Officer

Plenary – Member-led Panel Session
