Global Teachers Award; gain recognition for global learning classroom practice

The Global Teacher Award course builds teacher confidence and competence to bring global learning into their teaching. Teachers and HLTAs /TAs gain recognition for their global learning classroom practice.

Created and owned by the Consortium of Development Education Centres (CODEC), the original GTA trainers were accredited by Liverpool Hope University.  For over 12 years, this course has been delivered to teachers in the UK, to project partners in Europe and International School teachers. First endorsed by Oxfam in 2009, from 2013-2018 the GTA course was included as a CPD offer in the Global Learning Programme (GLP), quality assured by IOE, London. 

From 2019 -2021 the Global Teachers Award is approved by the British Council for delivery within Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning* (CCGL) continuing professional development offer. This means that there is funding available for educators in state-funded nurseries, schools and FE colleges to complete the course and gain recognition for their classroom practice.  The Global Teacher’s Award (GTA) supports teachers in developing the skills, confidence and practical approaches to increase global learning within the curriculum, and to promote active global citizenship for sustainable development.
