Course Overview

The LGBTIQ+ course is designed to improve your understanding of the LGBTIQ+ community. It also provides tools to apply your knowledge to promote a fairer, more LGBTIQ+ inclusive society.

The course should take approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes to complete in total, and it is split into 3 modules.

Please note:

  • A variety of initialisms are used to describe individuals with diverse or fluid sexual orientations or gender identities. In this course LGBTIQ+ is used in written copy, whilst LGBT is used in the video animations. When third-party research is quoted, we use the original source language. Check out the glossary if you want to learn more about the LGBTIQ+ alphabet.
  • Participants in the videos chose how they wanted to be labelled.
