Global Learning Project
Along with the other members of the IDEAS network and in partnership with statutory bodies, we are contributing to the Global Learning Project. This enables the delivery of effective global learning in schools and teacher education institutions.
The Global Learning Project is about showing how education for global citizenship is Curriculum for Excellence, and about supporting teachers to develop their own knowledge, skills and attitudes with regard to education for global citizenship and sustainable development. As Curriculum for Excellence places importance on developing values and attitudes as well as knowledge and skills in children and young people, a key part of the Global Learning Project is how we measure changes in values and attitudes.
Please get in touch with Sally Romilly if you'd like to know more about the Global Learning Project and how your school can be involved.
