Title: Introduction to the Global Learning Programme

Introduction to the Global Learning Programme
  • Name of Expert Centre
  • Date

What is the Global Learning Programme?
  • The Global Learning Programme (GLP) is a
    ground-breaking new programme which will create a
    national network of like-minded schools,
    committed to equipping their students to make a
    positive contribution to a globalised world.
  • The GLP helps teachers in Primary, Secondary and
    Special schools to deliver effective teaching and
    learning about development and global issues at
    Key Stages 2 and 3.

Why take part?
  • Schools participating in the GLP will experience
    the exciting impact that knowledge and
    understanding of global learning can bring to
    pupils learning across the curriculum.
  • It helps pupils make sense of the world in which
    they live and to understand their role within a
    global society. The GLP will also help schools
    develop an ethos promoting tolerance, fairness
    and respect.
  • Teachers involved in the GLP will work with
    colleagues in local, like-minded schools to drive
    forward global learning across the curriculum,
    share best practice and engage in CPD

Why become a GLP Partner School?
  • Partner Schools
  • have an interest in global learning and wish to
    join the programme as a means of engaging pupils
  • have access to free online tools, resources and
    guidance, plus a comprehensive programme of
    professional development to enhance both
    knowledge of and engagement with global learning
    in their school
  • are given e-credits which can be redeemed against
    GLP-approved courses run by third party providers

Why become a Partner School (contd)?
  • Partner Schools
  • receive additional CPD via eight half-termly
    twilight sessions run by the local GLP Expert
    Centre school
  • appoint a GLP coordinator who works closely with
    their local Expert Centre to explore how global
    learning and development education can be
    integrated across their whole school. Together
    they help colleagues integrate global learning
    across the curriculum to give pupils a better
    knowledge and understanding of international
    development and of their role in a globally
    interdependent world.

Some views from the field...
There are so many different initiatives to
inspire students, like the Rights Respecting
Schools Award, Eco-schools and the International
School Award the GLP brings them together under
one umbrella and has the potential to increase
the impact of all of them. Paul Godfrey Regent
High School, Camden (GLP partner school)
I feel very confident to take on the GLP
programme in my school because of all the support
available on the website and by the advisors. It
doesnt feel like it will be a lot of extra work
as there is so much available to support us. It
is well planned and organised and therefore if
feels like it will be more sustainable and
lasting. Susannah Bell, Great Marlow Secondary
School. GLP Partner school
I am so pleased to have joined the GLP as a
Partner School - my head is bursting with ideas
as to how I can use global learning as a focus to
drive school improvement. Lynne McMulkin,
Headteacher, Denbigh Primary School, Luton
Our aim is to help schools develop Global
Learning programmes that are practical,
sustainable, achievable and enjoyable. Awsworth
Primary School, Nottinghamshire GLP Expert Centre
Who is delivering the GLP?
  • Development Education Consortium - seven partners

What is the GLPs understanding of global
  • An approach to learning about international
    development through recognising the importance of
    linking peoples lives throughout the world. It
    encourages critical examination of global issues
    and an awareness of the impact that individuals
    can have on them.

Aims of the GLP
  • The six aims of the GLP are to
  • help young people to understand their role in a
    globally interdependent world and to explore
    strategies by which they can make it more just
    and sustainable
  • familiarise pupils with the concepts of
    interdependence, development, globalisation and
  • enable teachers to move pupils from a charity
    mentality to a social justice mentality

Aims of the GLP (contd)
  • stimulate critical thinking about global issues,
    both at whole school and pupil level
  • help schools promote greater awareness of poverty
    and sustainability
  • enable schools to explore alternative models of
    development and sustainability in the classroom.

The GLP and development education
  • Under the Global Learning Programme, the key
    themes of development education will be
  • knowledge of developing countries, their
    economies, histories and human geography
  • knowledge of the basic elements of globalisation
  • knowledge of different ways to achieve global
    poverty reduction and the arguments around the
    merits of these different approaches.

Whole school ethos
A global learning school has a vision to develop
global learning pupil outcomes across the school.
This vision is embedded through a planned
process, involving staff, pupils, governors and
the wider community in global activities.
Target curriculum areas
  • English, history, geography, maths and science
  • Also citizenship and RE
  • Working with subject associations to produce a
    knowledge framework for target areas
  • Knowledge framework will link to KS2 and KS3
    statutory curriculum and beyond to help teachers
    embed global learning in their teaching and

Global knowledge, skills and values
Global learning approaches ask pupils to actively
engage with global knowledge through activities
which help them develop their global skills and
consider their global values
