Birmingham City Council has demonstrated its commitment to eradicating homophobia, biphobia and transphobia by appointing an LGBT schools advisor to deliver free training to our Birmingham teachers. The programme is being rolled out to individual schools and consortia through the NUT, NASUWT NQT induction and is available as CPD to all schools and BCC employees. The training has attracted teachers, support staff, school counsellors, NHS workers, researchers, youth workers, LGBT youth, governors and senior leaders.
