More about the Addressing Gender Equality in Schools project
This project will directly reach 400 teachers across the UK, Hungary, Sweden and Italy, and create external coaches to support schools. These teachers will facilitate ‘Gender Agenda’ projects with over 12,000 pupils. The results of this project will be shared with 150 teacher training institutions and 2000 trainee teachers, and more broadly contribute to improved classroom management.
The AGES project is designed to support teachers, providing trainings and resources they need to engage children in creating safe spaces for dialogue around gender inequalities and gender discrimination. Partners from the UK, Hungary, Sweden and Italy shared their knowledge on the issue with each other and with teachers from the four countries creating an International network to support schools with methodologies and resources. Partners conducted studies on how ‘gender’ is dealt with at both country level (governmental) and a direct school understanding. The guide also includes some tips and information on methods such a dialogical techniques and Forum Theatre.
