Conference on Gender Identity
Friday 17th July 2015

At Cornwall College Camborne site.

Lead speaker is Polly Carmichael from Tavistock Clinic.

This conference is a free whole day event aimed at helping schools understand the issues which occur when a pupil is gender non-conforming, presenting as or identifying as ‘transgender’. Nationally the referrals for young people for issue with gender development have quadrupled in the last 5 years, this is reflected in Cornwall where there are already increasing numbers coming forward for help and support. There will be a range of experts to guide workshops and we are delighted to have Polly Carmichael speaking, the national lead for Gender services to young people.

We will also be re-launching the Cornwall Schools Transgender Guidance revised edition, which is nationally adopted by the Dept for Ed as best practice in supporting ‘trans’ students and pupils.

Places are limited to a maximum of 2 per school, priority is given to school leaders.
