Global Learning Project Scotland
The Global Learning Project Scotland (GLPS) is part of the wider Global Learning Programme in the UK funded by the Department for International Development.
The GLPS is a 3 year project with the strategic objective being to provide coherence to global learning in Scottish schools. Global Learning is taken to relate particularly to issues of international development, global poverty, social justice, citizenship and sustainable development.
The Global Learning Project Management Group is responsible for devising and overseeing a programme of development work aimed at enhancing the provision of global learning in Scottish schools. The Management Group involves both voluntary and statutory sectors organisations. The development tasks initiated by the GLP Management Group must be clearly consistent with nationally agreed development priorities.
The work of the project takes place under the following strands, contact the Hub Facilitators if you are interested in getting involved in the work:

Continuing Professional Development Workshops for Teachers for 2012/13

The workshops include sessions such as:
• Rights across the curriculum: an active learning approach
• Climate Change: an interdisciplinary approach
• Global Thinking: practical ideas for developing thinking skills through global citizenship
• Food for Thought: investigating the global food system
• Dhaka to Dundee: linking local history with global issues
• Comparing localities: using place as a context for global citizenship learning
• A global approach: primary topic planning
• Failte Malawi: A country focussed approach to global citizenship
• A’ Adams Bairns: equality and diversity in Scotland’s past and present
This innovative activity pack and CD ROM explores slavery past and present in the context of Scotland's history. It draws on original source material contained in the National Library collection to explore contemporary issues relating to racism, multiculturalism, religion and sectarianism. The pack has over 50 activities some of which draw on a number of traditional and contemporary folk songs. For more information on the pack and CPD opportunities contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
For resources to help you incorporate Global Citizenship into your teaching visit the new Seeds for Learning website www.seedsforlearning.org.uk
The activities in this pack encourage primary school teachers and their pupils to explore the links and commonalities that are shared between Scotland and Malawi. With a focus on children's rights, the pack covers four topics; water, food and farming, houses and homes, toys and play. By exploring how these key needs are met in Malawi, pupils will learn more about themselves and their own communities. For more information on the pack and CPD opportunities visit here.
