GALE has have prepared a number of courses on sexual diversity education, which can (for European countries) be funded under Erasmus+. Each course is 4 days and one or two days come-back meeting. The courses should be done in another country than your own to get it funded. If your application is accepted by the EU, your own contribution is about â‚Ź 180 for both travels and courses, while the EU will pay all travel, accommodation, food and course fees.

The courses are:

Peer education on sexual diversity - How to discuss lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender topics with students and young adults
Schools without homophobia - Be an effective change maker in your school and more effective in mobilizing the team in combating homophobia
Dealing with strong opinions - Learn how to deal with strong opinioned students, who deny the holocaust, think homosexuals should be killed, Muslims should be sent 'home', women should be treated like property and Jews should be gassed
Strategic advocacy to mainstream attention for homophobia in schools -Assess the implementation of the right to education in your region or country and strategize a high impact strategy to improve it
Assess homophobia and transphobia in schools - This training is a workshop, which completely supports you to prepare a research strategy in your country.

The deadline for application is 17 March, 12:00, and the application needs to be done by the legal representative of your organization. The application form is quite long, but GALE has made draft texts to make the application easier for you. If you want GALE support, please send GALE a note of interest: http://www.lgbt-education.info/en/training/note_of_interest. We will then contact you to offer support. In the week of 10-15 March GALE offers personal support via skype or phone. If you needs this, please make an appointment so they don't get overwhelmed with requests and can plan their work.

Help us to map the right to education for LGBT

After publishing the Guide to Advocate for Sexual Diversity Education, GALE starts to map the right to education worldwide. On the GALE website, the GALE Checklist is now available. This short survey helps GALE to make an overview of how the right to education is respected and implemented for LGBT people in your country. The results will be used to create a map of denying, ambiguous and supportive states.

The survey consist of 21 questions. Our questions focus on the role of the State to secure these rights, but you can also add information about what happens in practice. If you do not add additional information, the survey will take just 5 minutes to finish.

At the end of the survey you will be asked if you would like to become a GALE reporter. We would like to find interested supporters in each country to keep on monitoring the right to education, and to stimulate both LGBT and mainstream organization to do the right thing. This could be to develop training and materials, but even better would be to first assess what the country needs and which types of strategy and interventions will be most feasible and effective. The GALE Foundation will support reporters to act on this, for example by helping to organize strategic workshops or some research.
