TRAINING

LIS has provided training since 1987. Over the years a training package entitled 'Homophobia Awareness from a Multi-Oppression Perspective' has been developed which has utilised experience from the different services LIS has provided and a growing understanding of multi-oppression. The framework can be given in lecture format (one hour), workshops session (two - two-and-a-half hours), day training course or a ten-session module. Training, lectures, speeches and workshops are geared to the needs of the audience.
