Programme and speakers

This practical day features these confirmed sessions:

  • Jess Bradley (Trans Students' Officer, National Union of Students) has made history as the first person to be elected to a role of its type in Europe. Jess discusses how the existence of this role and the Trans Campaign will provide a vital campaigning resource at colleges and universities, a national platform to organise for trans liberation, and a democratic voice to trans students across the country.
  • Ellen Pugh (Policy Programme Manager, Equality Challenge Unit) gives an overview of the Equality Challenge Unit’s recently revised and updated guidance for staff in higher education institutions across the UK and colleges in Scotland about improving experiences for trans students and staff.
  • Kit Heyam (Postgraduate Research Student, University of Leeds) leads a workshop about trans and non-binary identities, outlining the challenges that higher education students may face, and providing the opportunity for you to become comfortable with terminology, concerns and areas to address.
  • Nic Streatfield (AMOSSHE Executive Member and Head of Student Services, York St John University) leads a workshop about implementing good practice to support trans students in a Student Services context. This is an opportunity to learn from peer institutions, and explore strategy, practical measures, and effective communication with institutional colleagues and stakeholders.
