Gender+ is a two-year Erasmus+ KA2 project which will develop governance and benchmarking tools to improve gender inclusivity within VET. Many courses are split along traditional gender lines and minority gender groups are underrepresented. Therefore, our project will produce a series of related resources: a Gender+ Charter will set out the minimum requirements an organisation should conform to in order to consider its provisions gender positive. Practitioners will assess their services and track improvement, scoring themselves against the Charter in order to form a ‘Gender Footprint’. Organisations that score highly will then be awarded a Gender+ Quality Mark. A skills profile and resources for the development of a Gender Champion role will also be created.
This project is funded with the support of the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union. Project No: 2018-1-UK01-KA202-048039. This communication reflects the views only of the author, and the Commission cannot be held responsible for any use which may be made of the information contained therein
