Knowledge about tools and measures to motivate gender untraditional educational choices

The project, commissioned by Bufdir, aims to investigate how lower and upper secondary schools in Norway facilitate youths’ educational choices independent of gender.

The project will assess the factors influencing how schools utilize tools and measures to influence non-traditional gendered educational choices. We intend to enhance understanding of how these measures are perceived and comprehended within schools, as well as their role in promoting less gender traditional educational choices. Methodologically, the project relies on various methods, from case studies to group and individual interviews, and surveys. The target groups include school owners, school leaders, career advisors, teachers, and students in lower and upper secondary schools. The study aims to develop advice and recommendations regarding schools' measures and tools to support less gender-segregated educational choices.
