“This online resource is a vital tool in creating a more equitable society for everyone. The user is clearly guided through the ideas and challenged to unpack the maintenance of sexism within schools and society. The resources also contain practical advice and plenty of examples of positive current practice that should readily support students and teachers in taking direct action in schools. I would recommend this to both trainee and current teachers.” - Dr Anna Llewellyn, Programme Director, Education Studies – Durham University

The online training course includes interactive activities, case studies, video content and classroom resources. It will enable teachers to meet their legal duty to challenge sexism and discrimination in schools.
