Equality and Diversity
These materials provide examples of effective practice in equality and diversity within STEM subjects and careers. Teachers may also find the resources available from the interactive Equality and Diversity Toolkit useful. The toolkit has been developed with a view to promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, (STEM) careers to people with a range of backgrounds and needs. The toolkit is aimed at anyone who is in a position to influence or advise young people aged 11-16. This includes: teachers, careers co-ordinators, work related learning co-ordinators, Connexions/careers advisers and anyone involved in developing resources related to STEM subjects.
The non-statutory guidance containing information on what schools need to do to meet their requirements under the equality duties can be found here. The collection Girls into Physics: Research Evidence provides a number of research reports which explore causes of girls' under-representation in physics, and suggest possible approaches to tackling this issue.
These wide-ranging resources provide information and guidance that will help practitioners and employers consider issues such as gender equality, subject choice, inclusive pedagogy and providing successful work placements.
