The three-year programme, designed to equip teachers with the skills to teach global citizenship effectively in the classroom, reached over 1,500 of Scotland's schools to date - some 59% of Scotland's schools, demonstrating real impact.

Initatives have included innovative face-to-face learning sessions covering a variety of topic areas, including numeracy & literacy, rights, food inequality, Fair Trade and political literacy and a new online course Introduction to Global Citizenship - a core part of Learning for Sustainability, designed to ensure access for teachers in more remote areas.

IDEAS has also carried out, as part of GLP-S, STEM specific workshops linked to Sustainable Development Goals; teacher networks and sharing sessions; in-depth Practitioner Enquiry impact sessions; the publication of Stride online magazine, including ready-made resources; and the creation of Signposts - a dedicated website full of tried and tested resources and learning materials.

IDEAS is also planning a series of Young Citizen Advocate events this year, led by young people and linked to the Year of Young People 2018 in Scotland.
