Global Learning Programme

Free events showcasing global learning in your area

Following four years of successful global learning activity in thousands of schools across the country, the Global Learning Programme (GLP) is delighted to invite you to a series of regional events showcasing global learning and led by local schools.

Open to state-funded schools in England, these events have been developed to celebrate global learning and demonstrate its benefits to schools, and to give you new skills, tools and resources to help you teach more confidently about global issues.

Our FREE regional conferences are being held at a range of venues across the country. You will find more details on the events organised in each region below. Please note that this page will be updated regularly with new events.
