What you can do

Teacher training for secondary schools

Stonewall delivers training to teachers through Train the Trainer courses. These courses give pastoral, anti-bullying and PSHE leads in schools the knowledge, tools and confidence to train colleagues on tackling homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying.

It also helps them to understand how to support lesbian, gay, bi and trans young people, as well as meeting the requirements of the new Ofsted inspection framework. Participating schools become members of Stonewall’s School Champions programme

Course objectives

  • Practical ways to support lesbian, gay, bi and trans young people.
  • Gain an overview of the current state of homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying and its impact on pupil achievement and school performance.
  • Find out how to meet your Ofsted and legal requirements under the Equality Act 2010.
