Improving Gender Balance Scotland

A partnership between Institute of Physics, Skills Development Scotland and Education Scotland.

IGB Scotland is a 3 year pilot project running in 6 school clusters through Scotland, working to identify and tackle the challenges facing pupils due to gender stereotypes.

Two project officers are working closely with education practitioners, careers information and guidance staff and other educational and government bodies to help schools identify and address issues around gender and subject choice.

By working with early years centres, primary and secondary schools the project hopes to achieve an embedded and sustainable approach to tackling gender imbalance in subject uptake and education pathway choice, with a particular focus on STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) subjects.
