Support at School

Principals and school leadership structures support inclusive learning environments for all students, working in partnership with parents and carers. This work is guided by social and emotional wellbeing frameworks, embedded in education policies and procedures.

The Capability, Confidence and Diversity Initiative provides professional development and support for school staff in Queensland to maintain educational environments inclusive of all students, including those who may be Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Intersex and Queer (LGBTIQ+). This involves phone support, online and mixed mode professional development, and advice for schools to enhance parent and carer engagement.
