UKFeminista: resources for teachers, students and parents to help promote gender equality in the classroom

UKFeminista aims to support people and organisations to take action and create lasting change in order to bring about equality between women and men. 

A key part of UK Feminista's work is to support schools with tackling sexism in schools. As such, they have developed free training and resources to tackle sexual harassment, sexist language and gender stereotyping in schools.


UKFeminista has a free online teacher training course for schools and Initial Teacher Training providers, which aims to equip teachers and trainee teachers with the knowledge, tools and confidence to challenge sexism and sexual harassment in the classroom.

It includes:

  • practical tools for preventing sexual harassment, sexist language and gender stereotyping in the classroom
  • how schools can take a strategic, 'whole school' approach to tackle sexism
  • what impact sexism has in schools and society

The course lasts 90 minutes and can be completed in one sitting, or over a series of sessions.

Resources hub

Alongside the training, UKFeminista has created an online resources hub, with support for teachers, pupils and parents. Resources include:



To help understand the scale of the issue, UKFeminista undertook research on sexism in schools – you can access the report and its findings here.

The Life Members' Sector Council (LMSC)

Whether leaving a labour of love or embracing a life of leisure, there can be no doubt that retirement from school leadership marks a huge change in lifestyle. There will be adjustments to make, new challenges to take and a range of new opportunities. At a time like this, it is important that our experienced members do not lose all the support they received in their working life. Our life members’ committee is here to ensure members are supported in retirement.

This committee feeds its extensive wealth of experience and know-how to support the work of NAHT. It also gives our life members the chance to make important contributions to our campaigns for working members.  

The committee, which meets four times a year, is made up of one elected representative from each of our regions, with the addition of one place each for Northern Ireland and Wales. And these elected committee members, normally, serve a three-year term.

Areas of focus for the committee include the following: 

  • Current legislation issues eg pension provision
  • Action against discrimination, including age discrimination.
