Why do this course?

Designed for individuals or staff at all levels of an organisation, this course will help you acquire a foundational understanding of LGBTIQ people’s identities and their unique needs when accessing a service.  Drawing on research produced by Rainbow Health Australia and the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society (ARCSHS), supported by the largest ever surveys of LGBTIQ health and wellbeing in Australia, the evidence shows that LGBTIQ people are more likely to access and benefit from services that they know to be consistently affirming of their identities and experience. 

 

This course can support organisations to meet the minimum requirements of Rainbow Tick accreditation, under Standards 2 - Workforce Development.
