This evaluation report concerns a small pilot project with high school teachers and years 10, 11 and 12 female secondary students. The project centred on a forum held on 20 August 2010 by the Association of Women Educators (AWE), which included a presentation and discussion about non-traditional careers for women. Queensland members of The National Association of Women in Construction Association (NAWIC) provided leadership and were typically women who worked in or who owned businesses in the non-traditional areas. It was intended that an outcome of the presentation and forum would be an evaluation of whether the learning experience made a difference regarding the choices the girls made and if they believed they were more informed about possible non-traditional careers and the pathways that could be taken in order to gain employment in these careers.
What it Takes provides an outline of AWE's support for pregnant and parenting young people, information about the 2009 Symposium, detailed case studies of community and school-based programs for pregnant and parenting young people, an overview of effective practice and makes recommendations for the future. This report was published by the AWE in September 2010 and is written by Kay Boulden.

Responsible educators know the consequences of early school leaving. For young parents, early school leaving can also have disastrous long-term consequences for their children. This guidebook is designed to help school staff, parents and communities work towards making their school a welcoming and supportive place for pregnant and parenting students to be.
Present pregnant and proud explores what schools can do and documents good examples of schools around Australia. These schools provide a showcase of outstanding achievement of innovation and social justice in the retention of pregnant and parenting students in education. Present pregnant and proud offers a model policy for schools and systems and provides recommendations for further action.
Everyone is Special provides advice to teachers from a broad range of perspectives on sexuality education. It confronts the moral panic about 'political correctness', especially the intolerance, bigotry and hatred that characterises the current political landscape. Taken together, the voices in Everyone is Special help teachers unsderstand the social and cultural aspects of human sexuality, particularly the different identities and needs of minority groups of people in our school communities.
The purpose of this text is to provide a resource for curriculum innovators who are developing and implementing quality curriculum, that is, curriculum which includes a gender focus. Material has been drawn from an impressive and diverse range of project teacher work over the past two and a half years, as well as input from our university-based colleagues.
