Course overview

At Stonewall, we believe that all young people have the right to an empowering learning environment, regardless of their gender. That’s why we have worked with UCL, Cardiff University and University of Brighton to develop a new training course for schools and colleges.

This course, available in various locations in England, equips teachers with the tools to understand and tackle harmful gender stereotypes in schools and colleges. This course is available to primary schools, secondary schools and colleges.

By booking a place on a Stonewall course, you are agreeing to the terms and conditions of School & College Champion Membership, which can be found here.

During this course, participants will:

  • Develop an understanding of how pupils are affected by gender expectations and stereotypes at school and college
  • Know how to make positive changes to tackle gender stereotypes in their own contexts

By the end of this course, participants will have:

  • The skills and tools to create a learning environment where all students are able to thrive, regardless of gender
  • An understanding of gender stereotypes

It was very interesting to hear about the research and what we do without realizing it. The course offered good opportunities to talk with teachers in other types of school as well as schools like mine.

There were lots of opportunities for discussion, which allowed real life examples to be shared. It helped me to evaluate what we are doing well and identify where we need to go next.
