Global Learning Programme

The GLP (Global Learning Programme) aims to:

  • help young people understand their role in a globally interdependent world and explore strategies by which they can make it more just and sustainable
  • familiarise pupils with the concepts of interdependence, development, globalisation and sustainability
  • enable teachers to move pupils from a charity mentality to a social justice mentality
  • stimulate critical thinking about global issues, both at a whole school and pupil level
  • help schools promote greater awareness of poverty and sustainability
  • enable schools to explore alternative models of development and sustainability in the classroom.



Why is Global Learning important for pupils?

The GLP puts a primary focus on developing pupils’ knowledge and understanding of development and global issues through subject-based learning in key curriculum areas. It also recognises the important role global learning initiatives can have in encouraging pupils’ values and skills development, and creating opportunities for active engagement. A focus on knowledge, skills and values might include helping pupils to:

  • learn about why and how there are inequalities in the world
  • take part in discussions on development themes and topics
  • question viewpoints and perspectives and challenge stereotypes
  • learn about the social, economic, environmental, cultural and political impacts of globalisation
  • explore their own values and how they impact on others
  • listen to, understand and respect different voices and perspectives
  • be self-reflective and develop critical thinking and analytical skills
  • understand different ways of achieving global poverty reduction
  • respect and value diversity.
