We are so pleased to be able to share our new ‘straight to ICV’ bitesize training module – Trans Awareness. We have converted this bitesize at requests from schemes. You can watch the video here.

The bitesize has the following objectives:

  • To ensure ICVs have an excellent understanding of what Transgender/Trans means and how Transgender/Trans differs from sexuality.
  • To examine what PACE Code C says on the treatment of Trans detainees.
  • To consider what ICVs should look for in terms of treatment in custody of Trans detainees and how to use personal confidence to talk with detainees.

There is also an additional reading document to accompany the video which ICVs can access here.

ICVA wants to give a massive thank you to Bee Bailey, who has helped review our content and given her unique perspective to this work. Thank you so much Bee!
