A pilot project run by a partnership of learned societies and universities led by King’s College London and the Institute of Physics.
This project will work with 10-12 schools to trial a gender equality kitemark, during the 2016/17 academic year. Participating schools will carry out a self-assessment against a set of principles, which are based on research by King’s College London and the IOP. They will be supported by a mentor during the process, and will take part in a full project evaluation led by an external evaluation team.
The pilot aims to:
- Assess how and why schools change practice around gender equality as a result of taking part in a charter scheme.
- Identify how and why barriers prevented schools from engaging with the project or changing practice.
- Establish a framework that can form the basis for a national project, based on the findings of the pilot.
