Gender in the Classroom

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. Gender In The Classroom equips teachers with the tools to understand and tackle harmful gender stereotypes in schools. This course is available to primary schools, secondary schools and colleges. 


Course Objectives

During this course, participants will:

  • Develop an understanding of how pupils are affected by gender expectations and stereotypes at school
  • Know how to make positive changes to tackle gender stereotypes in their own school contexts
  • Feel empowered to pass on their learning to other colleagues at school


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
  • An understanding of the impact of gendered and sexist language 
  • Guidance on meeting inspection frameworks and legal requirements 
  • Best practice insight from schools and colleges in tackling gender stereotypes
