Expected outcomes of the course:

To increase understanding of the potential that global learning can offer to provide an engaging context for the new English Curriculum. To develop awareness of: texts that relate to global themes, methods of eliciting pupils' global interests for discussion, and genres of writing that enable pupils to best express their ideas, both formally and informally.

Embedding global learning in your teaching:
