In addition, an “It’s a Women’s World” question time event, lunchtime clubs and youth voice sessions were embedded throughout. Each girl recorded their developing skills, values, goals, plans, and positive affirmations in a reflection journal, along with ideas for further self-taught actions.
In the summer term, 12% of participants were able to take part in an extension programme of 1:1 youth coaching.
Aims of the project
Ofsted has identified that girls generally outperform boys academically, but this doesn’t translate into career or pay advantages later in life. We also know that by age-6 children classify jobs as ‘male’ and ‘female’, and by age-12 50% of girls aspire to gender-stereotyped jobs.
In addition, local education leaders have reported that girls often set limitations on their career goals and, in rural areas, access and exposure to inspiring female role models is limited.
The No Labels No Limit initiative aimed to address these challenges through a series of interventions.
