At Loughborough College, we encourage people from different backgrounds, cultures and sexual orientations to work and study together in mutual respect.  Our aim is to provide a safe, happy environment where people can reach their individual potential without fear of prejudice or discrimination.

At College, we have an active LGBTQ+ Group, which meets regularly to share experiences and plan activities.

Our sevices

Our 1-1 sessions for LGBTQ+ learners are either 25 minutes or 50 minutes in length, are completely confidential, and are either in person at Loughborough College or online via Teams. They are facilitated by Lisa Vine, who’s pronouns are she/her and who has eight years of experience supporting LGBTQ+ children, adolescents and adults. To date Lisa has worked with over 400 LGBTQ+ people through 1-1 sessions.

These sessions give LGBTQ+ learners and those questioning their gender identity and/or sexuality a safe space to talk and share, as much or as little as they want to or are ready for. They are a space where LGBTQ+ learners will be guaranteed an active listening ear, positive body language and validation for who they are, what they are feeling and how they are feeling it. LGBTQ+ learners are also offered advice and guidance relating to their identity, perhaps around disclosure, transitioning gender and navigating relationships, to give just a few examples.
