The Global Learning Programme (GLP) for England is a free programme of support that can help enhance teaching and learning about global issues at Key Stages 2 and 3.

The GLP focuses on developing pupils' knowledge and understanding of global challenges such as poverty, inequality and sustainability through subject-based learning in key curriculum areas. It will support you in helping pupils to think critically about the issues, and develop skills and values as they consider actions that they and others can take to overcome them.

Join the Global Learning Programme and your school will receive:

  • a free, peer-led, locally-based programme of support;
  • up to £500 of e-credits which your school can use to pay for CPD from approved providers; 
  • an online audit tool, helping you to identify your school's global learning strengths and priority areas for development
  • an action plan for your school, outlining practical ideas and strategies; 
  • curriculum guidance to support global learning in key subject areas;
  • resources to support classroom teaching and whole-school global learning initiatives;
  • an online tool to assess pupils' global learning.

The Global Learning Programme is funded by the Department for International Development and is managed by a consortium of leading global learning and educational organisations, including Oxfam.

Once registered for the GLP, schools can use their e-credits to pay for CPD from Oxfam, including Defining your global citizenship ethos, Creating a real curriculum with global citizenship and Global citizenship to support transition. Find out more and sign up for Oxfam CPD on the GLP website.

Work with Development Organisations in the GLP

Oxfam, as a GLP consortium partner, are offering a free twilight workshop to Expert Centres exploring how international development organisations can support schools in the GLP. This event could provide an exciting opportunity for your partner schools, and help develop and enrich your GLP cluster.
