Educating the Educators is a training session delivered by Cara-Friend to all professionals and volunteers working with young people in Northern Ireland. It is designed to make the participants’ practice more inclusive of, and responsive to, the needs of LGBT young people. It has been delivered in Belfast once a year for the past three years, but 2017 will see the highly successful session be delivered in Derry-Londonderry and Armagh, in addition to Belfast.

The training will consist of an informative session on sexual orientation and gender identity, and will cover the issues faced by LGBT people, as well as the different definitions and terms we hear associated with this community. It will also involve a series of practical workshops designed to improve all participants’ practice in their workings with LGBT young people. It is designed to be interactive so that the participants can get the most out of the session – so specific scenarios can be brought in which relate to a participant’s own work.

Educating the Educators will take place at the following times and venues:
March 2nd 2017  Armagh City Hotel, 5pm-8pm
March 9th 2017  Holywell Trust, Derry~Londonderry, 5.30pm-8.30pm
May 17th 2017  Belfast LGBT Centre, 5pm-8pm

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. To take part is completely free, and requires all who are interested to fill in the registration form below.
