Global Learning is THE golden thread through your curriculum, delivering Intent, Implementation and Impact
Developing a Global Learning focused curriculum is ambitious- as well as creative, caring, collaborative. Pupils’ Global Learning experiences support their development as global citizens, preparing them for their future
CDEC supports teachers with knowledge, skills and resources to weave Global Learning into your school’s curriculum. This is delivered through CPD, general support, resource boxes and other resources and projects.
Global Learning excites pupils and develops a passion for learning. It develops their critical literacy skills, allowing them to apply and build on their knowledge for their future as active global citizens with compassion and agency for people, place and planet.
By being CDEC members you will receive support to bring global learning into your classroom, including:
- As members, you will have access to FREE places on our open courses throughout the year. We really value you telling us what areas of focus you would like to support global learning- so do get in touch. A free place on online and face-to-face courses could include
- Global Maths
- Global Literacy
- Global Science
- Introduction to P4C
Membership of CDEC offers primary and secondary schools a range of unique resources and training opportunities related to our place on the planet and our role within our local community.
They can be used across the whole curriculum; strengthening young people's voices, giving minoritised groups confidence, helping school children develop empathy and giving them agency to be future global citizens by showing them the benefits of taking responsibility for themselves, each other and the space we all share.
Empathy, understanding and critical thinking are invaluable tools for young people as they face a challenging and ever-changing world.
