LGBTed is a network of LGBT+ teachers and leaders, empowering them to be authentic in schools, colleges and universities, to support students and to be an advocate for increasing LGBT+ visibility in our education system.

LGBTed use our network to influence education policy around LGBT+ inclusion in education; we support and empower colleagues to come out at all levels in education; we increase school leaders’ knowledge of LGBT+ issues in education
and improve teacher retention by allowing colleagues to be more authentic in the workplace.

Come with us and let’s be the role models we needed when we were at school.

“Spending time with everyone on the course and listening to the inspiring speakers has made me so much more determined to make our school an inclusive and LGBT+ friendly one. Fast forward seven months and I’m actually part of the senior
leadership team. I think it will be really good for students to see an out lesbian on the S.L.T. And I will now have the confidence to launch school-wide LGBT+ events”

“I started out on the course just wanting to spend time with other LGBT+ teachers. That has been excellent but I’ve gained so much more than I ever thought possible. I also wasn’t really interested in leadership roles at the start
of the course. I feel much more confident about discussing LGBT+ issues in school as a direct result of this course. It’s given me the confidence to suggest that all departments get involved and I would not have done this before.”
