Women's stories of empowerment and empowering

Vicky Duckworth, Rob Smith

    Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


    Access to basic education is a fundamental human right. Ensuring this right is a reality for girls and women needs a commitment at a local, national and International level. The challenge for educators, policy makers and all stakeholders is how to ensure this is addressed. The aim of this International Women?s Day report is to provide a lens on gender, learning and empowerment. This research aims to understand and provide evidence of how the further education (FE) sector is vital in transforming lives and communities in 21st century Britain. The study provided learners, teachers, parents and employers with the opportunity to tell their stories, linking the distinctness of FE to the impact it has on individuals, society and the economy, and strongly drawing out the role of the teacher in making a difference to quality teaching and learning. The research data provided a rich source of evidence for the empowering and inclusive work undertaken in FE for sector representatives and policy makers to draw upon. This report presents some of the findings in relation to women?s stories of empowerment from the research project.
