 Thanks again for the excellent training which has generated great follow up conversations.

 I’ve gained increased confidence in understanding the complex relationship between gender, sex and sexuality. I know aim to be as inclusive as possible in my classroom.

 It was a really good presentation. I learnt loads and I was surprised at how little I knew about recent laws that have come into place around LGBT+ issues. I am pleased that I came along. Thank you.

 Good and clear information. The training was great and provided understandable information. The activities were involving and interesting.

 Thank you for a great session. I met with the student group again and they were really enthusiastic… I cannot express how valuable your support and insights were.
