Gender EYE (Gender Diversification in Early Years Education: Recruitment, Support and Retention) is a study by the University of Lancaster Department of Educational Research and the Fatherhood Institute, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council.
Latest figures suggest that only 3% of the early years workforce in England & Wales, and 4% in Scotland, are men. This proportion has remained virtually static for 20 years. Our research aims to identify the obstacles that stand in the way of greater gender diversity; to learn about possible solutions (including those developed overseas); and to use this knowledge to produce practical resources that can help the UK diversify this vital part of the education sector.
