CAFOD course is coming to Cumbria: Everything is connected: Enrich your school curriculum through global learning

Jan 20, 2020

Join CAFOD for an engaging, interactive day to explore living in an interconnected world and caring for our common home. Take away many ideas, resources and activities that will enrich and broaden your curriculum and support the Catholic life of your school.

Teachers of both KS2 and KS3 are being urged to come along to this useful course which is being held on Friday 17 April from 9.30am to 3.30pm in Ambleside.

It will be led by CAFOD's Education team and is responding to the values and challenge of Laudato Si’ by integrating global justice learning throughout your school.

Resources, strategies and activities that explore our relationship with our global neighbours in an exciting and engaging way.

This course will enable participants to explore and embed global learning across the school, with a particular focus on interdependence from a values-based perspective, as inspired by the inclusive Catholic perspective of stewardship and “care for our common home”.

CAFOD will provide resources, strategies and activities that explore global learning (and in particular at least two SDGs) and the values of students, in a fun and engaging way.

As well as the day’s training, CAFOD will provide ongoing online and offline support to help you implement the learning from the day into the life of your school. There will then be a one-hour twilight seminar (date and time to be arranged in conversation with the participants, approximately 6 weeks later) so you can share ideas and feedback on the tools and strategies you have implemented.

It is particularly good for:

  • Primary teachers 
  • Secondary teachers (particularly non-RE teachers) 
  • Aspiring leaders (including pastoral leaders) wishing to demonstrate whole-school impact 
  • Any teachers (including SLT) who would like to better support the Catholic life of their school
  • Any teachers with an interest in global learning.

By the end of the day, you will be able to:

  • create new learning opportunities to support active global citizenship
  • enable students to understand the interdependence between their school community and communities around the world
  • employ a range of strategies to help students engage critically with text, images and film about different cultures
  • help students explore the Sustainable Development Goals.
