ITE providers in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire have been working together to try to optimise the teacher training experience for all beginning teachers in the region. We are committed to promoting and celebrating a diverse and inclusive teacher workforce.

As part of this work, this year we are launching a regional network for beginning teachers in the region who identify as LGBT+. The network will meet throughout the year on a half termly basis, sometimes in person and sometimes virtually. This will provide an opportunity for you to:

  • connect with other beginning teachers with similar backgrounds and identities; 
  • share experiences and discuss issues important to you; 
  • explore topics about teaching and learning from your cultural perspective; 
  • work with a range of practising teachers and educators who will support you to see yourself as a substantive part of the education workforce. 

The group will be facilitated by Adam Brett, Inspiring Leaders SCITT Hub Lead.

Our first session will be held at The University of Nottingham on Tuesday 12 October, running from 4.30-6.00pm

Please come along and decide whether you would like to engage with us over your teacher training year.
