Global Learning Programme (GLP)

Global Learning Programme 2013 – 2018

The Global Learning Programme (GLP) was a government-funded, UK-wide initiative that ran between 2013-2018. It was managed separately in each UK nation to reflect devolved education policy, and in England (GLP-E) was managed by a consortium of partners: Pearson, Geographical Association, UCL Institute of Education, Oxfam UK, Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), SSAT and Think Global.

The focus was to help teachers deliver effective teaching and learning about development and global issues at Key Stages 2 and 3.
Key elements:
* Educator-led, supported by dedicated Global Learning Advisors regionally. Lead Practitioner recognition for outstanding teachers
* Supported development of school networks led by Expert Centre schools and Global Learning Advisors with 18 month engagement of schools. Including self assessment tools at school and pupil level
* Quality-Assured CPD available to all schools.
* Whole school approach with subject-specific guidance and pupil progression mapped to inspection requirements

Whole School Approach

A fundamental aim of the Global Learning programme (GLP) was to encourage schools to develop a
whole school approach to global learning. Best practice evidence suggests this approach
will achieve the greatest global learning outcomes across the school and will better support
wider school improvement.

Whole School Framework;

Embedding global learning across the whole school is a process which takes time and support. Schools
guided by the Whole School Framework can plan and check progress against it as they
widen reach. We offer training, coaching and mentoring to help schools progress a whole school approach
