Between January and July 2012 NUS ran a pilot project that aimed to support staff and students in Further Education colleges to tackle tensions, real and perceived, between LGBT equalities, and religion and belief equalities.
The 'Facilitating Dialogue on Faith and Sexuality in FE' resource pack is the result of this pilot project. It includes sample activity plans, case studies from HE and FE unions, and an exploration of what a dialogue approach is and how it can help build good relationships between students on your campuses.
At the heart of the project was the belief that good mutually respectful relationships between learners from different backgrounds are more likely to be developed when learners can express and explore their personal experiences, rather than rehearse fixed opposing principles.
