Global Learning Programme

Crispin Hughes /OXFAM

The Global Learning Programme (GLP) was a government-funded programme of support that ran from 2013-2018 to help teachers in primary, secondary and special schools deliver effective teaching and learning about global issues.

More than 10,000 schools participated across the UK, with many experiencing the positive impact that global learning can have on learners' engagement, knowledge, skills and values.

You can access some of the free resources, guidance and research outputs from the GLP via the Global Dimension website.

New government-funded programme coming this autumn

The new Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning programme (2018-2021) is replacing both the GLP and the British Council's Connecting Classrooms.

Led by the British Council, it will offer exciting funding opportunities for you and your school, as they will be looking for schools with experience in global learning to lead local clusters of schools, who are keen to work with you and learn from your experience.

If you're interested in becoming a Lead school, with the facility to apply for grants to support a range of global learning activities within a cluster, or just wish to be kept informed about the new programme, please register your interest.
