EVALUATING GENDER FRIENDLY NURSERIES: A PROGRAMME RESEARCH PROPOSAL
16th November 2020
This research conducted by EPPE Network Member Megan Birman in collaboration with Susie Heywood and Barbara Adzajlic proposes an evaluation of the Gender Friendly Nursery (GFN) programme in Glasgow, Scotland. The programme is delivered by the North East Health Improvement Team of the Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP) to act as gender stereotype prevention training for nursery staff. The programme consists of a 12-month accreditation system in which nurseries work to receive an award for good gender practice. At present, only a fraction of the nurseries that have participated in the GFN training have progressed to receive the full GFN award. This proposal has been constructed to evaluate the enactment of GFN in Glasgow’s nurseries in hopes of understanding what has prevented nurseries from completing the programme.
