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.

If you are looking for advice and direction on how to ensure your organisation is a responsible one and that your staff are global citizens, our global learning consultants will be able to give you the guidance and advice you need to start your journey.

What’s involved?

Whether you are a school, business or third-sector organisation, one of our global learning consultants will plan with you to work out:

  • where you are on your global learning journey
  • where you want to be – what aspects of global citizenship do you want to foster in particular
  • how you can get there.

You will end up with an action plan detailing what activities and direction you need to take. We can also help with advice on the best workshops and CPD training to choose to help you and your staff achieve your ambition to be an active and responsible global organisation.

What is the role of global citizenship in business?

Global citizenship extends to organisations and businesses. Your workplace is also part of our local and global communities, and is dependent upon the global political, economic, environmental and social situation for business.

Leading by example and displaying respect and fairness to staff, customers and the communities in which you operate, and acknowledging your responsibilities towards the planet, your organisation can improve customer satisfaction and loyalty, instil growth, prosperity and become more sustainable entities.

This is good for business and for communities!

Fostering corporate social responsibility is taking on this mantle and being a responsible and an active part of your community. Supporting your staff and customer’s fundraising, their local groups and schools, reducing your impact on the planet and taking positive action to ensure your organisation has a positive impact on people wherever you engage with them are just some steps you can take.

The biggest hurdle can sometimes be that within the organisation. Gaining an understanding of something that doesn’t show an immediate quantitative impact isn’t always appealing to organisations.

How can CDEC help you?

However, CDEC has the experience and deep knowledge of how to engage with a wide variety of stakeholders to benefit an organisation’s culture. We come to your business, lead team-building challenges to foster cooperation and a shared identity within the organisation and the community in which it sits.

We talk to you, learn about your organisation and then develop a bespoke plan to start you on your CSR journey.
