Free LGBTI+ Teacher Training

                            

 

Mark 13th-17th November in your school calendar, and join us for Stand Up Awareness Week to take a stand against LGBTI+ bullying.

To help you prepare for this event, we are offering free CPD sessions for teachers, principals or members of the board of management in a number of locations across Ireland. During these two-hour sessions, you will learn how to make your school a friendlier place for LGBTI+ students.

The training dates are:

  •  Cork, Ballyphehane: Tuesday, 26 September, 5:30-7:30pm, Deerpark CBS, 20 St Patrick's Rd, Ballyphehane, Cork, T12 K83R.
  • Dublin, Blackrock: Wednesday, 11 October, 5:30-7:30pm, Dublin Blackrock Education Centre.
  • Dublin, West: Tuesday, 19 September, 5:30-7:30pm, Dublin West Education Centre.
  • Dublin, North: Wednesday, 4 October, 5:30-7:30pm, Location: Marino Conference Centre, Marino Institute of Education, Griffith Ave, Dublin 9. *Focusing on the needs of transgender students. 

Teachers across Ireland have great things to say about Stand Up Week in our video below from last year’s event.

 

 

 Later this month, we will send you a Stand Up Pack for your school including posters for your hall and staff room, alongside a resource pack full of information and classroom activities.

Together, let’s create a safer, more supportive school environment for all of our young people.

 “I would encourage other schools to take part in Stand Up Week. I think it’s really important, especially in Ireland, that every school creates a welcoming and positive environment where students feel safe and secure to be who they are, LGBT or otherwise.”
