Global Learning
The Global Learning Program is designed to shift a school's social emphasis from charity to social justice, and to introduce schools to alternative methods of teaching from different parts of the country and the world. In doing so, it raises students' understandings and competences for a diverse, modern Britain and for an increasingly internationalised world. There may be scope for VbE schools to help develop the values component of the program. Funding may be available for this work.

Key Aims
The Global Learning Program (GLP) has six key aims, helping students to:
  • understand their role in the world
  • understand concepts of cultural integration and interdependence
  • explore strategies that strengthen ties
  • raise their awareness of social justice
  • develop critical thinking
  • raise their awareness of issues of poverty and sustainability

The program
The Global Learning Program is a free resource for schools. Funding is available to schools who want training, or who want to help develop the program through activities such as active research and networking with other schools.

Highlights of the program include
