An international collaborative research project has been implementing in five-country contexts since May 2021 with the funding support of the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) to uncover impact of Gender and Inclusive Pedagogies (GIP) on students’ participation and learning achievement at secondary schools during the pandemic and beyond. This paper presents mainly 20 head teachers’ observed changes as an outcome of GIP practices by a selected number of subject teachers who teach Mother Language, Science, Social Studies and Mathematics at grades VII and IX in 20 experimental secondary schools in Bangladesh. Data collected from those head teachers in July 2023 by using semi-structured interview guide were analyzed following six steps data analysis process offered by Clarke and Braun (2013). The major findings revealed all head teachers’ recognition of visible changes in subject teachers’ attitude towards practice of GIP focusing on gender-friendly and participatory teaching-learning process and considering student characteristics and learning difficulties including the students with special needs. In addition, their frequent practice of GIP instead of conventional teaching-learning has increased attendance of irregular students in classrooms; reduced inhibition and isolation tendency between boys and girl students to great extent; enhanced respect and cooperation to each other; extended support to classmates with special needs; and increased their learning interests and achievements significantly. The findings imply the importance of GIP practice by the teachers in the broader context of secondary education level in Bangladesh. The major recommendations suggest the project team’s scaling up initiatives to convince the policy and decision-making stakeholders.
