Education systems can present both opportunities and barriers to gender equality.

On this three-week course run by the British Council, you’ll hear how schools can become more gender-responsive, reflect on opportunities in your own learning environment, and gain practical approaches to put these into action.

You’ll start this course by looking at how gender norms and stereotypes can influence learning environments and how gender relations are linked to power relations, especially in the context of education.

Through case studies and real-life stories, you’ll explore how teachers from different countries are making their schools more inclusive for all genders. You’ll then look at the different ways you can implement these strategies in your own context, such as creating trust and positive relationships for classroom management and evaluating learning materials and developing curriculums with gender inclusion in mind.
