During the past years gender equality - and research institutions in European countries developed standard criteria for gender trainings. The Project is led by the Lower Austrian Government.
From now on the curriculum portfolio GenderStrat can be used. It contains a series of quality criteria for the training of trainers in the field of gender equality, setting standards within Europe. It is available for managers of European programmes and funds, municipalities and training facilities, which hold key positions for knowledge transfer.
Due to its modular structure the curriculum can be used as an individual tool also in other areas of training. It represents a valuable basic concept for the transfer of knowledge concerning gender equality.
