Global Learning Programme

FREE Women’s History Month/International Women’s Day resource

March is Women’s History Month, with International Women's Day taking place on 8 March. Following the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, the Global Learning Programme (GLP) has created this FREE resource to help your pupils celebrate the progress made by women around the world, and to remember that there is still work to be done.

It supports the teaching of Key Stages 2 and 3 literacyscience and history, and helps teachers wishing to develop their pupils’ knowledge of interdependence and equality, while encouraging them to consider the concepts of fairness, agency, rights, respect and social justice, and how individuals can make a difference.

You can also access our free resource to commemorate the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, which took place on 6 February 2018. Aimed at Key Stages 2, 3 and above, this free resource supports the teaching of literacy, mathematics, history, geography, citizenship and PSHE. It comprises links to a range of cross-curricular sources, background information on how the vote for women came about, and a selection of discussion points to consider with pupils.

Log in to your school's GLP account to access these and many other free teaching resources.

If your school isn't one of the thousands of schools in England already registered for the GLP and benefiting from the funding for CPD,* curriculum guidance and resources available, simply register your school today for free! But don’t delay − GLP-funded courses must be booked by 29 March 2018 and attended by 1 June 2018.

If you’re not sure if the GLP, or global learning, is relevant to you and your school’s needs and priorities, please take a look at some of the examples of how global learning can bring tremendous value to teaching across the curriculum.

Additional resources and teaching ideas

The GLP can also support teachers in addressing the topics of gender and equality through the wide range of additional resources, case studies and CPD courses on offer

The GLP gender and equality webpages present a number of resources and background reading for teaching around gender and equality in a global context.

The Global Dimension website also offers a wide range of GLP-approved resources on the themes of gender and equality.

Case studies from schools already delivering global learning offer ideas and insight for teachers across the whole school. See how Netley Primary School incorporated Global Goal 5 (gender equality) into their whole-school topic ‘The World We Want’.

GLP-approved CPD

You can use GLP fundingworth up to £500 to pay for attendance at a wide range of accredited CPD courses. Our CPD Calendar offers a variety of courses to help you incorporate global learning into your classes – including a wide selection of ‘flexible’ courses (which can be arranged for a time that suits you):
