Our training and resources for schools

Think Global offers innovative online and in-person training opportunities to help develop an outstanding global learning school. As well as enabling access to resources through the Global Dimension Website, Think Global also develops high quality teaching materials.
As set out in our free Global Learning Guidelines, we believe that students, teachers and school leaders all have a part to play in developing a global learning school.


You can browse taster material from our short and easily accessible online training course, ‘developing a global learning school‘ (available under topic 2 below).

Hannah and Catherine run the modules for an hour on Tuesday or Thursday afternoons over six weeks. Both Hannah and Catherine are teachers  and trainers too.

This taster will look briefly at ‘International Development and Poverty‘ which is one topic of six module topics covered on this top-rated online CPD course.

The modules enable teachers to reflect upon global learning ideas and resources. The modules always give techniques and content to try back at school. Participants say that, as well as discovering new resources, they love collaboration and group discussion with their colleagues taking the course. Over the six weeks they build a good relationship and support each other with specific challenges.  Please try our taster course slides available under topic 2 below.
