Gender sensitive teaching and counselling in vocational education

VISIBLE is a transnational networks -project which evaluates and summarizes all the relevant national and international projects on gender sensitive teaching and counselling in all the participating countries as well as at European level in general and draws recommendations for future actions.

Making it possible

The education system plays an important role in creating ideas about gender that are often unconscious ways to deal with female and mail students. There is a need to find innovative methods and practical instruments for a systematic way to include gender aspect in the everyday work of teachers as well as to raise awareness of education policy makers in order to include gender sensitive approach to curriculum of teacher/counsellor training.
