Guidelines - Educational Curriculum Design
There is a current worldwide recognition that the current transport systems inadequately address gendered differences in terms of the current infrastructure and the delivery of services, and that gender equity has not been realized. The findings from DIAMOND project suggests that women as users of transport services, for example, are often concerned with availability, accessibility, safety, awareness, and cost. In relation to employability, women are concerned with their career development and flexible working opportunities.
To address these concerns, the DIAMOND project has developed curriculum design guidelines to provide a roadmap for adaptation of training and studies content in relation to new skills and opportunities in the transport system.
The main aim is to develop a new level of curriculum design guidelines for educational institutions and future transport professionals to deliver excellence in education and ensure equity in the transport sector. Essential to achieving the above stated objective is to design novel educational content to address the following items:
- How technologies should adapt to women needs
- How to match job opportunities with women motivations, talents and needs
- How to design job characteristics and disseminate to attract women
- How to carry out HR processes to avoid bias and discrimination, and cover psychology aspects in the different stages of employment including getting into education, workforce, job recruitment, retention, progression in jobs, etc.
- Future skills needed for job positions
- How to design transport services to meet women's requirements and expectations, and improve their access to transport and jobs
The Guidelines are targeted at European Universities and training centres offering graduate and postgraduate studies, in-company and occupational training on Transport Technologies and Management. They show how to handle gender needs in transport planning, in service offerings, and how to tackle job opportunities in a fair way is generated based on the project outputs, in relation to:
- New skills identified in transport related job
- New jobs and services opportunities
- Women attitudes and talent towards new technologies, business models
- Impact of women in Technology (adaptation of new technologies related to transport and women’s needs)
The expected outcome of the guidelines will be an increased readiness of transport systems and educational courses for gender inclusion based on a better understanding of women talents and motivations in job opportunities.
