For all teachers of Physics… join the Welsh Physics Teachers Conference Brecon 2020 which will be online this year between 5th-10th October 2020. A fabulous free week of presentations and workshop for teachers, technicians and PGCE students with opportunities to network with colleagues online.
As in the rest of the UK, Wales’ gendered subject choices at A level underline a wider gender imbalance in our schools. But where does this start? We worked with two secondary schools in South Wales and seven of their feeder primaries. In this presentation we’ll look at the baseline data from the primary schools’ teacher and pupil questionnaires. This will include information about teacher speciality, their current experience of gender-related initiatives, pupils’ perceptions of who does which roles, pupils’ career aspirations and more. We’ll look at how this data informed our action plans and touch on some of the areas where we could see the possibility for change.
Suitable for KS3-4.
