Gender+ is a two-year Erasmus+ KA2 project which has developed governance and benchmarking tools to improve gender inclusivity within VET (Vocational Education and Training). Many courses are split along traditional gender lines and minority gender groups are underrepresented. Therefore, our project has produced a series of related resources: a Gender+ Charter which sets out the minimum requirements an organisation should conform to in order to consider its provisions gender positive. Practitioners can assess their services and track improvement using our Benchmarking Tool, scoring themselves against the Charter in order to form their ‘Gender Footprint’. Organisations that score well are then awarded a Gender+ kitemark. A Skills Profile and resources for the development of a Gender Champion role have also been created.
