Sexual stereotyping in education, 2011

Submitted by: Cheltenham Branch, NCW

The National Council of Women, in Conference assembled, notes the government’s intention to introduce Technical Schools offering education in Engineering and Technical skills for 14yr olds who do not wish to pursue an academic career. NCW urges Her Majesty’s Government to treat girls and boys equally in these new Technical Schools, ensuring open access to education in the fields of Science, Engineering, Technology and Mathematics, and encouraging the consideration of non-gender-specific career possibilities in SETM for both girls and boys.
