Transgender Awareness for Employers & Service Providers

These modules are being updated and will be available again mid April. 

GIRES is grateful for the funding that the Department for Communities and Local Government committed to support the development of this e-learning resource. The resource is intended for use by organisations in the public and private sectors.

There are three different modules:

  • Module 1 is a general introduction to gender variance, for example explaining basic terminology
  • Module 2 covers how to create trans-inclusive workplaces and specific guidance on how to support an employee who transitions at work
  • Module 3 covers how to provide trans-inclusive services to the general public

You can choose to complete the modules in any order, and they can be completed independently, however it is recommended that you complete Module 1 (Introduction to gender variance) prior to completing the other two modules. Modules take approximately 20-30 minutes each to complete.

Note: In order to use these modules you will need a flash plugin to be installed on your internet browser. For Windows 10 users the Edge browser has a plugin built in. Apple Mac computers and iPads will need an equivalent flash plugin also for Safari.
