Towards Gender Sensitive Education

The project is a three-year long project implemented by five organisations from three EU countries in a strategic partnership: Masaryk University (Czech Republic), Gender Information Centre NORA (Czech Republic), Hungarian Women’s Lobby (Hungary), Eötvös Loránd University (Hungary) and Verein EfEU (Austria).

The main objective of the project is to enhance gender sensitivity of current and future teachers and to develop, pilot and disseminate a methodology for training in gender sensitive education. We will develop two 30-hour courses in gender sensitive education, one for current teachers and one for future teachers (students of faculties of education). Our target group is current and future lower secondary school teachers, i.e. teachers of pupils of age 11-15. The project priorities include social inclusion by addressing the issue of gender diversity in classroom, and strengthening the teaching profession by supporting teachers in dealing with diversity in the classroom.

Intellectual ouputs developed by the partners:

  • Comparative research report
  • Methodology of gender sensitive courses
  • Videos about gender for teachers
