New Training Resources on GENDER from INEE

INEE  has produced another excellent module to add to their Education in Emergencies resources.

INEE, the INEE Gender Task Team, and the Global Education Cluster are pleased to announce the addition of a new training module on Gender Responsive Education to the Education in Emergencies Training Package.


The Gender Responsive Education in Emergencies Module complements the rest of the training package by promoting the importance and necessity of mainstreaming gender into education in emergency programs and policy decisions.  It provides tools for supporting integration and achieving quality and accessible education for all. The module consists of presentations, handouts, interactive dialogue sections and exercises to guide participants through the various steps of integrating gender in their education work. The module can be tailored for the beginner learner on gender or it can be used with advanced practitioners.


The CORE key learning points include:

  • Identifying what a gender-responsive approach to education entails
  • Using a gender framework that builds from the IASC ADAPT and ACT Collectively tool
  • Creating gender-based strategies to support the INEE Minimum Standards
  • Reflecting on best practices and developing action plans to support gender mainstreaming efforts

The module was developed for INEE and the Global Education Cluster by Jessica Lenz, in consultation with members of the INEE Gender Task Team, the Education Cluster Working Group, and INEE Working Group on Minimum Standards and Network Tools.
