What is the
Global Learning Programme?
The GLP is a ground-breaking new programme
which will create a national network of like-minded
schools, committed to equipping their students to
make a positive contribution to a globalised world
by helping them to deliver effective teaching and
learning about development and global issues at
Key Stages 2 and 3.

Global learning
• Adapting to globalisation.
• Preparing citizens to
make the most of the
global economy they will
work in (e.g. being able to
do business in the global
market).
• Developing skills for living
in a globalised world (e.g.
using the latest
communication
technologies, speaking
more than one language).
Global learning
• Contesting globalisation
(‘another world is possible’
motto).
• Preparing citizens to
question the deeply unequal
and unsustainable world in
which we live.
• Developing skills for
analysing local and global
issues (e.g. critical thinking)
and for taking responsible
action to make the world a
better place.

What is the GLP’s understanding
of global learning?
Global learning is an approach to learning about
global and development issues through
recognising the importance of linking people's
lives throughout the world so that people can
recognise that we live in an interdependent world.
It encourages critical examination of global issues
and the roles that individuals and communities
can play in reducing global poverty.
The GLP is funded

Aims of the GLP
The GLP has six aims which are to:
• help young people to understand their role
in a globally interdependent world and to
explore strategies by which they can make
it more just and sustainable
• familiarise them with the
concepts of interdependence,
development, globalisation
and sustainability

Aims of the GLP
• enable teachers to move young people from a
charity mentality to a social justice mentality
• stimulate critical thinking about global issues
both at whole school and at a student level
• help schools promote greater awareness of
poverty and sustainability
• enable schools to explore alternative models
of development and
sustainability in the
classroom.

Whole school ethos
The most effective way to carry out global learning is in a
whole school way and doing so can help support school

Whole school
focus
A global learning
school has a vision
to develop global
learning pupil
outcomes across the
school. This vision is
embedded through a
planned process,
involving staff,
pupils, governors
and the wider
community in global
activities.

Global learning pupil outcomes
Global learning approaches allow pupils to:
• acquire knowledge related to development,
globalisation and global poverty
• develop skills through using this knowledge
to explore issues critically and to examine
the actions individuals and communities can
take to overcome global poverty
• consider their values around themes such
as fairness, human rights and tolerance.

Global knowledge, skills
and values
Global learning approaches ask pupils to actively
engage with global knowledge through activities which
help them develop their global skills and consider their
global values.

The curtain raiser!
• Development Education Consortium
designed and ran Shape the Future
competition for all UK secondary schools
from January to March 2013.

with the beginning of the GLP, gave KS3
pupils the opportunity to come up with their
own ideas about what should appear in the
post-2015 UN Development Goals.
Winning school:
• 5 schools presented their proposals to the

What did teachers say about it?
‘The students have absolutely loved the process… I have to
say the passion and ambition they displayed made me feel
that there is hope for the future.’
‘[Students] have really enjoyed the research aspect and
sharing ideas, so much so they have come in on the first day
of their holidays to make the final touches!’
