It’s good to be me! – Exploring diversity with a focus on gender

 1 day course

‘Relationships and sexuality education offers opportunities for learners to explore how their experiences, decisions, social and cultural interactions, and relationships can help them grow in empathy and recognise the dignity and respect due to others, and to the living world around them.’ Welsh Government 2019

During this 1 day course we aim to respectfully explore the sensitive area of gender, outlined in Curriculum for Wales, 2022.

Myths, misunderstanding and a ‘fear of offending’ may fuel a lack of confidence when discussing and exploring issues of gender with children and families.  This informational day will focus on bringing clarity to a complex and challenging area, and empower teachers to sensitively integrate important messages through their daily practice.

Course participants will:

  • Better understand the term ‘diversity’ and what the law states about the protected characteristics of gender.
  • Increase the ways in which they celebrate difference and challenge stereotypes within their schools and settings.
  • Consider the language, interactions and terms used in our communities and whether they are they helpful or harmful.
  • Explore gender dysphoria; feelings and responses, and the reality for individuals and families.
  • Reflect on ways to develop an inclusive and respectful environment.
  • Consider referral pathways and school policy in line with Curriculum for Wales 2022.

Target Audience: Primary Teachers and School Leaders
