In the second part of LGBTQIA+, Toria talks to Ian Timbrell about some of the issues facing our LGBTQIA+ young people today and how we can support them in school, including advice on how to support pupils coming out as LGBTQIA+ and what to do if a pupil asks to change their pronouns.
You can listen to part 1 here: https://tinyvoicetalks.buzzsprout.com/1267127/11421795-lgbtqia-part-1-with-ian-timbrell, where Toria and Ian discuss the meaning of the LGBTQIA+ terms, and Ian’s school life as a gay teenager.
Ian has been a teacher for 15 years and a deputy head teacher for 5 years, in which time he has worked as an advisor and supported schools across South Wales. Since the last podcast, he has announced his move to education consultancy, and will be launching Timbrell Education in January 2023, where he will share his passion for equality and support schools with RSE, diversity, and developing a literacy curriculum.
