Global Learning Programme


Crispin Hughes /OXFAM

The Global Learning Programme (GLP) is a free programme supporting UK schools, which equips students to make a positive contribution to a globalised world.

The separate GLPs across the UK are all funded by DfID. We are encouraging schools to join, as this an exciting opportunity to develop global citizenship in the classroom and beyond.

Schools can join for free and take advantage of resources and CPD training. Join the GLP and help develop yourself, your school and your learners.

Global Learning Programme England

Over 2,000 schools across England are already part of the  Global Learning Programme England  (GLP-E). The programme develops pupils' knowledge and understanding of global challenges such as poverty, inequality and sustainability through subject-based learning in key curriculum areas.


Your school will receive:

  • free, local, peer-led support through Expert Centre school networks
  • up to £500 of e-credits which your school can use to pay for CPD from approved providers
  • an online audit tool and action plan, helping you to identify your school's global learning strengths and priority areas for development
  • curriculum guidance to support global learning in key subject areas
  • resources to support classroom teaching and whole-school global learning initiatives

Oxfam is part of the consortium of leading global learning and educational organisations which manage GLP-E.

Sign up on the GLP-E website 

Once registered for  GLP-E, schools can use their e-credits to pay for CPD from Oxfam.  We are offering Oxfam World Shapers that has been designed to support schools working towards gaining quality awards and marks though the GLP-E


Also available are free twilight workshops to Expert Centres in England, exploring how international development organisations can support schools in the GLP. Please email to find out if there are any dates in your area.
