Is your school using Global Learning Programme funding?

    The Global Learning Programme (GLP) is a funded programme of support that, through free training, funding* for CPD, curriculum and subject guidance, free resources and support from a local school-led network, is helping teachers in Primary, Secondary and Special schools to deliver effective teaching and learning about development and global issues at Key Stages 2 and 3.

    A recent Ofsted School Inspection Update notes that, as the GLP 'maps onto the four Ofsted core judgements and to SMSC’, schools on the programme should be able ‘to set out how the GLP is contributing to their provision and outcomes for pupils’.

    Highlighted positively in inspection reports, global learning is reported as contributing to the enjoyment, engagement and learning of pupils in GLP schools – reinforcing their curriculum knowledge and understanding. It also provides an ideal way to promote SMSC and values.

    Thousands of GLP schools across the country are already experiencing the positive impact that global learning can have on pupils’ engagement, knowledge, skills and values. This funded opportunity is available to local schools until the end of 2017, so if your school is not already registered, please encourage your SLT to do so for free at www.glp-e.org.uk, or email the GLP for more information at glp@pearson.com, quoting 'TESGovernors'.

    *The GLP is funded by the UK government. All schools can join the programme but funding is only available to Key Stages 2 and 3 in state schools in England. The GLP in England is managed by a consortium of partners: Pearson (lead), Geographical Association, UCL Institute of Education, Oxfam UK, Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), SSAT and Think Global.
