GIRES (The Gender Identity Research and Education Society) has developed an e-learning resource on transgender issues for use by by public authorities. Gires received funding for this from the Department for Communities and Local Government who were committed to support this valuable intitiative. The resource also may be of use to organisations in the private sector.
This course starts with an introduction to GIRES’s e-learning resource and a menu screen.
There are three different modules
- Module 1 is a general introduction to gender variance, for example explaining basic terminology
- Module 2 covers how to create trans-inclusive workplaces and specific guidance on how to support an employee who transitions at work
- Module 3 covers how to provide trans-inclusive services to the general public
You can choose to complete the modules in any order, and they can be completed independently, however it is recommended that you complete Module 1 (Introduction to gender variance) prior to completing the other two modules. Modules take approximately 20-30 minutes each to complete.
