Stonewall Education for All Conference 2017

Stonewall's annual Education for All conference, supported by Prudential, is Britain’s leading event on LGBT-inclusive education.

Join us on 28 June at the University of Birmingham and ensure that you are creating environments where every young person can achieve their full potential. 

Why attend? 

Learn best practice 

  • Embed LGBT equality throughout your education work with our 12 breakout sessions covering a wide range of topics. 
  • Hear from leading schools and local authorities on ideas that have worked for them. 
  • Address some of the greatest challenges facing schools today such as supporting trans young people, promoting positive mental health and wellbeing, or teaching inclusive relationships and sex education. 

 

Really useful content. I feel so inspired to go back to my school and make changes.

Get insight into the latest research

  • Be the first to read Stonewall’s latest School Report, the UK’s largest piece of research into the lives of LGBT young people in Britain and get advice on what the results mean for your school. 
  • Understand the latest guidelines on LGBT-inclusive education and how to implement them. 
  • Get an exclusive look at the new Stonewall curriculum guide, which provides lesson plans and ideas that will enable you to ensure your whole school is embedding inclusion in every subject. 

This year I learnt so much about trans issues and the latest guidance on how to tackle them in our school, it was invaluable.

Make connections and share innovations

  • Join 300 education professionals from around the country with a wealth of experience in all areas of education. 
  • Meet other education leaders and share ideas for collaboration and partnership working.
  • Share challenges and insights and use the expertise in the room to find solutions to issues you face. 

This event taught me the power of positive networking in building valuable partnerships going forwards.
