This session will explore the experiences of LGBT+ and disabled or neurodivergent young people in a variety of settings on a day-to-day basis. It will encourage participants to reflect on the challenges faced by young people, the barriers and stigma to accessing Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and how to create an inclusive learning environment.

Aims:

  • Recognise the challenges faced by LGBT+ and disabled and neurodivergent young people in RSE.
  • Identify strategies to make RSE more inclusive and to reflect the statutory RSHE guidance and the Equality Act (2010).
  • Be confident in planning and delivering RSE lessons that are inclusive to LGBT+ and disabled or neurodivergent young people
