The world in your classroom

Join Think Global’s online training course starting Thursday 11 January and gain in confidence in delivering and advocating for global learning in your school.

Think Global’s course runs from 4.15 to 5.15 every Thursday over five weeks, and is designed to give teachers the space and time to reflect upon teaching international development and global issues in the classroom. In particular, it will support teachers to explore and critique relevant resources and ideas together, and give them greater confidence to advocate global learning back in their own school community. It will also support teachers to gain confidence in online learning.

By using global learning to enrich the curriculum, GLP schools are finding that global learning is helping to develop critical thinking skills, promote SMSC, and foster values such as respect and empathy.” Findings from OFSTED reports on the Global Learning Programme

Through participating in this course teachers will be able to more confidently discuss global learning, in the context of their own school agenda. They will be inspired to discuss and debate definitions of poverty and development, and consider how this relates to their own classroom practice. By the end of the course, teachers will be more confident to choose, use and advocate good quality global learning resources in their school, in order to support curriculum development.

“The course has given me lots of ideas and the confidence to share ideas and training with other staff. Each session was well thought out and addressed issues relevant to introducing and enhancing global learning in schools.”

When: Our January Developing a Global Learning school course is starting on 11 January and is running for 5 consecutive weeks, with an additional session on Tuesday 16 January. It is delivered online, so that teachers can easily sign in at the end of the school day.

What does it cost? The course costs £500 and teachers from schools registered on the Global Learning Programme for England can use e-credits to fully cover the cost.

The GLP England, Wales and Scotland programmes have been extended so that the GLP in all 4 nations will now end in Summer 2018. This give schools more opportunity to make the most of the training, resources and support available as part of this national programme.
