Gender in the classroom

At Stonewall, we believe that all young people have the right to an empowering learning environment, regardless of their gender. That’s why we have worked with UCL, Cardiff University and University of Brighton to develop a new training course for schools.

This course, available in various locations in England, equips teachers with the tools to understand and tackle harmful gender stereotypes in schools. This course is available to primary schools, secondary schools and colleges. Participating schools become members of our School Champions programme. The terms and conditions of School Champions Membership can be found here.

Free Stonewall training funded by the Government Equalities Office available for eligible primary schools

Stonewall is working with the Government Equalities Office to offer free bespoke training to eligible primary schools. If more than 14% of your pupils are eligible for Free School Meals and you’re based in an eligible area, you could apply for a free training package for your school.

Please note your school is only eligible for this training if you haven’t worked with Stonewall or any other organisations before on LGBT inclusion.
