Teachers’ union NASUWT is holding a CPD opportunity for teachers and school leaders on ‘Education and Gender Equality: Learning Lessons, Moving Forward’ at Queen Elizabeth II conference centre in Westminster on Monday 17 November (9.45am-3.45pm).
The one-day national conference, which is free for NASUWT members, marks the end of the ‘Unite for Quality Education’ campaign year, which aims to secure quality education for every child and young person on the planet. The conference will consider why education equality for girls and women should be a national and international priority, and the role that schools and teachers play in securing better outcomes for girls and women, aiming to stimulate professional and policy debate and consider policy priorities for advancing gender equality in schools and colleges; give participants access to practical information, materials and resources; and enable participants to understand and share research, practice and developments in the area of gender equality in education.
Speakers include Sarah Brown, Campaigner on global health and education, Professor Averil Macdonald of the WiSE Campaign, Professor Gaby Weiner, Visiting Professor, at the University of Sussex, Haldis Holst, Deputy General Secretary at Education International (conference chair), and Chris Keates, General Secretary of NASUWT.
Seminars and workshops will cover using values and global learning to promote gender equality in the classroom; international development, volunteering, gender equality and education; strategies for increasing girls’ participation; identifying and supporting girls who suffer abuse (for example forced marriage, female genital mutilation), involvement in gangs); and career prospects for women teachers.
