An evening seminar with IEA: ‘Do both boys and girls feel safe at school – and does it matter?’

26th February 2019 2/26/19 18:00-20:00

‘Do both boys and girls feel safe at school – and does it matter?’ is the latest policy paper from the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA), as part of their Compass Briefs in Education Series, which inform education policy debates globally.

Join us for an evening seminar, kindly hosted by the Royal Society, to hear the paper’s key findings presented by its author and IEA Executive Director, Dr Dirk Hastedt.

The new paper uses IEA data from the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) to examine, for the first time, how educational achievement and gender relate to how safe students feel at school.

We will also hear from a panel of expert educationalists who will be discussing the implications of the paper’s findings for England. Confirmed panellists include: Shaun Brown (Head of Community & Inclusion, The Difference); Catherine Gladwell (Director, Refugee Support Network); and Professor Kathryn Riley (UCL, Institute of Education). The panel will be chaired by EPI’s lead for wellbeing and inclusion, Whitney Crenna-Jennings.

Following the discussion, attendees will be invited to stay for some light refreshments and networking.

To request a ticket please contact info@epi.org.uk stating your name and organisation.
