This handbook was developed in association with Erasmus+ Programme Key Action 2: Cooperation for
Innovation and Exchange of Good Practices. This training handbook was developed from robust empirical data
conducted in four European countries (United Kingdom, North Macedonia, Spain and Greece) by the IARS
International Institute (UK), Subversive Front (North Macedonia), Asociación Caminos (Spain) and Symplexis
(Greece). The research conducted explored the experiences of teachers and parents in regard to their knowledge
and understanding of gender-based violence in schools.
The findings of the research identified gaps in school curriculum and policies in eradicating gender-based
discrimination. Many of these gaps have included the lack of support and resources teachers have in tackling
the issues in the classroom. This is also evident in the role of the parents; and the difficulties of engaging both
parents and teachers on this issue highlighted the complexities of this and the complex dynamic between “the
public and private” in terms of the home and school environment. This training handbook acknowledges this by
providing good practices and practical guides that will explore how teachers should approach parents to include
them in school initiatives; methods for making parental involvement more tangible; and suggests ways in which
teachers and parents will be consistent against gender-based discrimination issues.
