Mel's Classroom Workshops

Mel is Space's Education Volunteer! She a fully qualified teacher with over 20 years of experience, devoted to bringing LGBT+ inclusivity into the classroom. She offers workshops for education professionals on how to start that conversation with students.

​With KS1children, Mel uses picture books to talk about the fact that families can be different but still share the same love.She gets KS2/3 children talking about gender and how we shouldn’t feel pressured to behave in a particular way because of it.
She also uses picture books to introduce what it’s like to be transgender and talks about homophobic, biphobic, and transphobic bullying and how to stop it.

​Mel also offers staff training; 1:1 support for schools with a transitioning child; and year group assemblies on the theme of inclusivity for all ages.
