Created and owned by the Consortium of Development Education Centres (CODEC), the original GTA trainers were accredited by Liverpool Hope University. For over 10 years, this course has been delivered to teachers in the UK and to project partners in Europe. Endorsed by Oxfam, from 2013-2018 the GTA course was included as a CPD offer in the Global Learning Programme (GLP).
For 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.
