'Anti-homophobic' interventions: seeking male teachers to participate in a research study

    Are you a male secondary school teacher?

    Can you spare an hour to be interviewed by me? (I will come to you)

    I am a teacher trainer at the University of Greenwich and PhD student at the University of Roehampton. The research study has full ethical approval.

    I would be very interested in talking to you via the mechanism of a semi-structured interview lasting approximately one hour about:

    · Your experiences growing up (including ‘sex education’ inside and outside of school);

    · How you ‘deal with’ homophobia in your classrooms / school;

    The role and influence of school ‘culture’ in the institutions(s) where you (have) work(ed).

    One of the key potential benefits of participation is an opportunity to share in best practice. As the desired impact of the study will be a series of recommendations for changes to the way teachers are trained, your contribution has the potential to improve the effectiveness of interventions aimed at tackling homophobia. The researcher is fully aware that participants may have concerns associated with maintaining anonymity and confidentiality. The researcher is fully aware of the ethical considerations associated dealing with a topic that is potentially personal and sensitive. Details of the robust data protection measures that will be put in place will be supplied on request.

    If you are interested in participating please contact me for further details:
