Global Schools Association
CPD for the Global Dimension
The aim of the CPD programme is to support teachers and educators in providing the entitlement of all young people in the region to global education.
The Association is working with other providers of in service courses to ensure that teachers across the region can access curriculum and key stage provision which will enhance their understanding of content and pedagogy.
The courses will be offered through twilight, half day and whole day sessions and will provide access to ideas and resources which will enable teacher innovation and progression in this field. The courses will be underpinned by the Core Concepts for the Global Dimension as contained in the DfEE/DfID document (2005).
To ensure that teacher needs are met partnerships with LEAs are developing and a mapping exercise has identified areas for future work.
Courses will be offered to ensure:
• Regional coverage geographically.
• Teacher needs are met.
• Continuity and progression through the Key Stages.
• Appropriate response to government initiatives.
