Global Learning Programme

Curriculum & resources

Embedding global learning

The GLP provides subject-specific guidance, resources and links to additional resources to help you embed global learning across the curriculum.

The Curriculum Framework connects up-to-date information about global learning with subject-specific knowledge, understanding, skills and pedagogical approaches. Where relevant, connections are made with the new national curriculum for Key Stages 2 and 3 or the national framework for RE. 

A useful starting place is to refresh your general understanding of development issues by reading the overview information provided in the Curriculum Framework: Current Development Context. This provides an introduction to the current global state of development, describing the progress that has been made in combating global poverty, the challenges that remain and how different subject areas can support teaching about global learning.

The support provided by subject area represents an important opportunity for embedding global learning in the life of a school. The GLP is working with key subject associations and bodies to develop a range of advice, guidance, subject exemplification and CPD training that focuses on global learning at Key Stages 2 and 3.

The resources pages provide free teaching and learning materials for use across a wide range of subjects at Key Stages 2 and 3. You will also find examples, ideas, subject exemplification and lists of recommended resources on the Global Dimension website, together with further support to enhance your understanding and your teaching of global learning.
