LGBT+ Teachers Rights

Many LGBT+ teachers feel that they cannot be open about their sexuality and gender identity in our schools. Many LGBT+ teachers feel that they may be discriminated against on grounds of their sexual orientation when it comes to employment and promotion opportunities.

The INTO LGBT+ Teachers’ Group provides a support and advice forum for INTO members who identify as LGBT+. The INTO will provide legal advice and support to any LGBT+ teacher who feels that have been directly or indirectly discriminated against.

INTO promotes an LGBT+ Inclusive School – the following poster was sent to all schools for their staffrooms to instil this message among all staff members.
