Global Teachers Award - online course

Global Teachers Award - online course

Throughout Cumbria, CDEC is well-known in the education sector for offering high-quality, up-to-date teacher training in and around global learning and global citizenship.

The Global Teachers Award builds your skills, confidence and practical approaches to incorporate global learning into the curriculum, and active global citizenship into your school.



Achieving the Global Teachers Award will improve and benefit your teaching and your children’s learning

Through the course, you will learn about and explore:

  • global concepts – ensuring  you understand the fundamentals of global learning and developing your skills to bring these into your classroom
  • different perspectives – so that you can effectively question pupils' and teachers' assumptions
  • various approaches to learning – and in so doing develop your own and you pupil’s critical thinking skills
  • applying learning – in the classroom, the curriculum and beyond
  • measuring change – giving you the tools to evaluate the impact of global learning in your school.


What does the course involve?

  • Six hours of face-to-face online training where you will collaborate with your fellow attendees
  • A course completion task that you send to your tutor, after which you receive a CCGL completion certificate for the Global Teachers Award 1 course at intermediate level
  • And if you wish to gain your GTA certificate, a follow up global learning activity that you carry out with your class at school and then critically reflect upon and submit by December 2020.


Who is it suitable for?

Teachers of all phases and all subjects, including Key Stage 2 teachers, will benefit from the course. It’s particularly useful to international or global coordinators and those holding responsibility for Eco-schools, SMSC, Fairtrade, and so on.

Who recognises the Award? 

The Global Teachers Award is endorsed by Oxfam and now approved by the British Council for delivery within the Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning (CCGL) CPD offer.
