Vol. 382 No. 3

Written Answers. - In-Service Teacher Training.


asked the Minister for Education if she has any plans to institute in-service training for teachers in the equality and sexism area on a regular and systematic basis.

A module on "Sexism and Sex Stereotyping in Primary Education" will be included in all in-service courses for primary teachers organised by my Department's inspectors this summer.

With regard to post-primary teachers, specific seminars and courses have been held in this area, and I have instructed the officials of my Department involved with the organisation of courses to see that issues regarding equality and the elimination of sexism are covered in in-service courses generally.
