Promoting Quality in Teacher Education

Inside Inclusion: supporting teachers and trainee teachers to address bullying and creative inclusive schools in the 20-21 academic year

7 September 2020

Chris has spent much of his career supporting trainee teachers, school staff, school governors and school senior leaders to develop strategies to address bullying and create inclusive school cultures. He has trained over 20,000 members of school workforces with overwhelmingly positive feedback. Chris has extensive knowledge and expertise on LGB&T (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) inclusion, how to address homophobia, biphobia and transphobia, and how to address disability-based bullying and create disability-friendly schools.
In addition to addressing bullying and creating inclusive schools where everyone can fulfil their potential, Chris’ interactive and practical training helps schools meet their Ofsted requirements to:
• provide quality education through an inclusive curriculum which is relevant to all young people;
• address behaviours and attitudes which exclude or discriminate against young people, their families and wider communities;
• encourage personal development through an understanding of the diversity of the world around us;
• embed principles of diversity and inclusion across school leadership and management
The sessions also help meet the eight teachers’ standards and, in those schools that observe them, to promote fundamental British values of democracy; the rule of law; individual liberty; and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.
Chris has worked with and built long-term relationships with a range of initial teacher training providers including University of Bristol, University of Chichester, LETTA Teaching School Alliance, Devon Secondary Teacher Training Group, Dorset Teacher Training Partnership, University of East Anglia, University of Northampton, Nottingham Trent University, St Mary’s University London, Teach First and University of Worcester.
Prior to establishing Inside Inclusion, Chris spent ten years working in the voluntary and non-governmental sectors, including leading the development and delivery of Stonewall’s work to tackle homophobic bullying across the British education system. Chris is also a consultant for the Anti-Bullying Alliance and a former primary school governor.
