Evaluation of the Government's anti-homophobic, biphobic and transphobic (HBT) bullying in schools programme
An evaluation for the Government Equalities Office in England to provide a robust and independent assessment of the effectiveness of their anti-HBT bullying programme in schools.
This evaluation aims to assess the effectiveness of six distinct anti-HBT bullying initiatives on their own merit and relative to each other. Specifically, it seeks to determine how effective each initiative has been - independently and relatively - in helping schools to prevent and respond to HBT bullying and to create an inclusive school environment for LGBT pupils and their families. The investigation also seeks to identify and understand how any improvements have been achieved. Differences relating to the intervention activities or the samples (i.e. types of schools targeted) will be considered and factored into the analysis.
As part of the evaluation, a cost-effectiveness analysis will be conducted for each separate initiative.
