Addressing LGBT Issues In The ESOL Classroom (NATECLA London)
Natecla London Regional Conference
Language acquisition can be hindered if learners are not in an environment which is conducive to fostering a welcoming atmosphere where all feel free to talk about themselves, their identities and personal lives. This is particularly relevant to LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) ESOL learners. However ESOL learners can sometimes display strong homophobic views, linked to culture, religion and personal beliefs.
Under the new Common Inspection Framework OFSTED identifies LGBT learners as a group vulnerable to discrimination. Through a series of workshops and talks, this conference aims to equip ESOL practitioners with practical ideas, resources and skills to address these important issues.
The event will be followed by a short AGM to re-establish a London NATECLA branch.
The conference is free and open to all NATECLA members and potential members.
