In addition to providing onsite trainings, The Transgender Training Institute hosts courses where participants can sign up and come work with us. Our current course offerings are:
Training of Trainers (TOT) Intensives
Our hallmark Transgender Training TOT is a professional development course for educators, trainers and facilitators who are interested in teaching transgender content to adults. Over the course of three days, we break down each of the elements of a successful “Transgender 101” training and help our participants to hone their skills to deliver highly impactful trainings. We use The Teaching Transgender Toolkit: A Facilitator’s Guide to Increasing Knowledge, Decreasing Prejudice & Building Skills as a textbook for this course, we help prepare educators to implement the lesson plans included in the book and provide support around aspects of nuanced facilitation such as responding to Frequently Asked Questions, handling challenging participants, or managing resistance or social justice fatigue. Our trainings draw participants from all over the United States, and a wide variety of implementation settings, including: K-12 schools, diversity trainings, colleges and universities, public health organizations, direct service and community based organizations, and corporate environments. This course is designed for individuals who have a solid transgender knowledge base and are interested in teaching this content to other adults. Experience teaching is often helpful, but not required. People of all gender identities and expressions are welcome in our TOTs, and we consistently strive to create a learning space that is fully affirming.
