Stonewall Scotland's 'Train the Trainer' course gives participants the tools, techniques and confidence they will need to train other staff in schools on how to tackle homophobic, biphobic and transphobic (HBT) bullying. By attending one of our Train the Trainer courses, schools become a Stonewall Scotland School Champion.
Fantastic and very informative.
Young people in primary school are particularly susceptible to HBT bullying and language. Three-quarters of primary school teachers say they hear homophobic language from pupils. Nine in ten teachers want to tackle the problem but have never been trained on how to prevent and respond to homophobic, biphobic and transphobic (HBT) bullying. Stonewall Scotland's Train the Trainer series provides participants with all the tools and techniques needed to train other staff on tackling HBT bullying and celebrating difference. It also provides support on how to positively celebrate difference in an age appropriate way and how to meet Education Scotland inspection requirements.
- Learn practical techniques to train other staff in your school on how to tackle HBT bullying and celebrate difference.
- Practical ways of including different families in the curriculum.
- Gain an overview of the current state of HBT bullying and its impact on pupil achievement and school performance.
- Find out how to meet your legal requirements under the Equality Act 2010.
