Transgender was the word seeing the second biggest rise in usage in the media during 2015. Transgender rights have become an urgent political issue. But the transgender community is very diverse and poorly understood after years of misgendering and stereotyping.
This half-day Transgender Awareness Training course is aimed at those working in the public, social purpose and voluntary and community sectors. It is relevant to administrators, practitioners and managers. The overall aim of the course is to help organisations improve the services they deliver to transgender people.
The course includes:
- What is Trans? – trans people from a social, biological, medical and historical viewpoint
- Legal overview – including the Gender Recognition Act 2004, Equality Act 2010 and the Equality Duty
- Best practice guidance to help your organisation improve service delivery to transgender people
- Practical ideas on other issues, including how to support transgender staff, and when and how to monitor gender identity
The course is aimed at people who develop and implement strategy; commissioners; service managers and operational staff. It will be very useful to those working in the health sector (particularly mental health), children and young people’s services, and to a wide range of voluntary and community sector settings.
