This is to share information about an up-coming free e-learning course which aims to support policymakers, practitioners and activists who are committed to pushing forward with the goal of achieving gender equality and working towards a world free of discriminatory gender stereotypes, so that all people can be who they want to be - regardless of their gender.

On successful completion of the course learners will receive a ‘certificate of completion’ that will be issued jointly by the Institute of Development Studies (IDS), UK Aid, and Voices for Change.

In order to take the course, learners will need the following.

Access to a computer or device with internet connection A modern web-browser installed. We recommend Google Chrome*, for best performance.  Access to an active email address Understand English as a working language

The course starts on Tuesday 8th December 2015 and runs until Tuesday 12th Janaury 2016. During this time facilitators from the Gender Hub team will actively support participants in problem solving and answer questions related to the course.
