Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 23 March 2017

To ask the Scottish Government whether the “into headship” qualification for teachers will include training in LGBTI+ education.

Answered by: John Swinney 18 April 2017

The Into Headship programme is designed to support teachers to meet the Standard for Headship and focuses on the specificity of headship and the strategic leadership role of the headteacher. The Standard for Headship makes clear that all headteachers must demonstrate a commitment to fully inclusive practices, including in relation to sexual orientation.
