Finished project

Granted year: 




Countries included in the project: 

Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden

Type of project: 


The issue of gender equality in schools and preschools has received a lot of attention in recent years, especially in the Nordic countries. One reason for this is that the national gender equality and discrimination laws have been expanded to cover also the school systems. The legislative changes make it necessary to develop the equality and diversity work performed in the school environment, which in turn requires carefully planned staff training for educational professionals and other school personnel. This project aims to provide such training by developing a tool for e-learning. The training will be provided via an online platform utilising a participatory approach, and is based on the results of a previous project titled Nordic Gender Equality Certification in Education, which identified and explored successful gender equality practices in the education sector.
