Challenge and Change: Global Citizenship Education in UK Schools

Prepared for the Korean Educational Development Institute Symposium on global citizenship education, this paper provides an overview of the current situation for global learning in UK schools, focusing on major challenges and changes that are influencing both teaching and learning. As a country with a relatively long history of global citizenship education, teachers in the UK are grappling with difficult questions of how to adapt existing programmes to new policies and priorities, and how to include global learning in increasingly crowded curricula. Drawing on both existing research and primary interview material, this paper highlights and invites discussion on some of the key issues confronting global educators in the UK and beyond.
