Aims of the GLP
What are the aims of the GLP?
The GLP is intended to be a whole school programme. Global learning principles should be apparent in the curriculum, pastoral work and in the wider life of the school. It is not just about global learning being delivered through geography or any other single subject, or about the occasional assembly.
The GLP aims to:
- help young people understand their role in a globally interdependent world and explore strategies by which they can make it more just and sustainable,
- familiarise pupils with the concepts of interdependence, development, globalisation and sustainability
- enable teachers to move pupils from a charity mentality to a social justice mentality
- stimulate critical thinking about global issues, both at a whole school and pupil level
- help schools promote greater awareness of poverty and sustainability
- enable schools to explore alternative models of development and sustainability in the classroom.
Guidance and support for embedding global learning across the whole of your school can be found throughout the GLP website.
