We are starting some of our face to face support services again from 1st October. Look at our calender page for full details.

Training

Our LGBT+ awareness and trans awareness training is of gold standard. We've trained over 1,000 people from a variety of organisations and continue to work with more businesses, councils, schools and voluntary sector organisations that want to become more LGBT+ or trans aware. Organisations we have delivered training to include:


  • NHS
  • Myton Hospice
  • Equality and Inclusion Partnership
  • Springfield Mind
  • Warwickshire Community and Voluntary Action
  • Warwickshire Police
  • Lifespace
  • Warwickshire Young Carers
  • Compass
  • Rugby Borough Council
  • Wedding Celebrants
  • Clinical Commissioning Groups
  • Schools across Warwickshire and Gloucestershire


If your organisation is looking to become more LGBT+ or trans aware, here's what we can deliver for you:


LGBT+ Awareness Training


This is a three hour training session that covers the following topics:


  • Terminology
  • Issues faced by LGBT+ people
  • Hate crime
  • Mental health
  • Challenging homophobic, biphobic and transphobic language
  • How to make your service safe, welcoming and accessible for LGBT+ people
  • How to be an ally to LGBT+ people


The training is delivered in an informal way, with plenty of interaction. The discussion is kept open and participants are encouraged to have an opinion and share their experiences. Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, this training can be delivered online via Skype or Zoom.


Copies of the slideshow presentation (don't worry, it's not death by Powerpoint) and a glossary of LGBT+ terminology are provided to each delegate. Certificates are also provided.


The cost of this training session is £250.



Trans Awareness Training


This is a 90 minute training session that covers the following topics:


  • Terminology
  • Issues faced by trans people
  • Hate crime
  • Mental health
  • The process of transitioning
  • Challenging transphobic language
  • How to make your service safe, welcoming and accessible for trans people
  • How to be an ally to trans people


The training is delivered in an informal way, with plenty of interaction. The discussion is kept open and participants are encouraged to have an opinion and share their experiences. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, this training can be delivered online via Skype or Zoom.


Copies of the slideshow presentation (don't worry, it's not death by Powerpoint) and a glossary of LGBT+ terminology are provided to each delegate. Certificates are also provided.


The cost of this training session is £150.



Bitesize Training Sessions


We are able to deliver one hour bitesize LGBT+ and trans awareness training sessions if you are time limited. The sessions cover exactly the same as the longer sessions do, but it's more of a whistlestop tour. The cost of the bitesize sessions are £150.



Full Day Training Sessions


If you're looking for something more in-depth, we're able to deliver full day training sessions. This could be to your team or the people you work with (students, service users, etc). We take a more bespoke approach to this, but could deliver a full day of LGBT+ or trans awareness training, or a series of bitesize sessions across the day. We'll discuss your requirements with you and then create a plan based on that. The cost for full day training sessions is £400.


Providing Our Training Materials for Your Organisation


We sometimes receive requests for our LGBT+ and trans awareness training slideshows and glossary to be made available to organisations for their own internal training, such as being made available as electronic copies. We are happy to do this, providing face to face training has taken place with some of your team. The cost for making the materials available to you for this purpose is an initial fee of £500, plus an annual fee of £150 for continuing to use our materials.



Talks and Workshops


If you'd like a guest speaker on LGBT+ or trans awareness, or bespoke workshops for your organisation, we're able to provide this service for you too. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
