Teachers feel they aren't prepared to teach same-sex marriage and LGBT issues

We have an Advice Centre with articles, tips and help on a large range of issues and a new Practical Guide to Time Management for FE & HE professionals to download.

We last carried out a survey into workplace discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) staff in education in 2005. We have decided to repeat the survey nearly a decade later to coincide with Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender (LGBT) History month to see how things may (or may not) have changed.

 
We provide a free telephone Support Line for all workers in Further and Higher Education in England, Wales and Scotland. The Support Line is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
 

We can help you take control of your finances problems with debt counselling from our money management team. Additionally some teachers may be eligible to receive financial assistance.

See what you can do to improve your work-life balance, wellbeing or stress levels with these online tools.
Please note that they are on the Teachers Support website - we are their sister charity and save money by sharing resources.
