Learning in a Global ContextLearning in a Global Context aims to help schools engage in an ongoing process of developing global learning.  All members of the school community can play their part in this exciting development – students, teachers, the SMT and parents. For a step-by-step approach to bring global learning into the heart of your school, make use of the Menu of Support below:

To make a start, teachers can complete the How Global is your School? audit and get an immediate response tailor-made to the needs of your school. This in turn can become your Action Plan for equipping and inspiring students to make sense of their place in the world and their relationship to others, both locally and globally.

Register your school, spend 15 minutes answering some straight-forward questions and get going! There’s a Planning Grid too, providing a template to direct school planning and make your Action Plan realistic and achievable.
