Global Learning Programme

Activities and Resources

The Global Learning Programme (GLP) has produced a set of useful free lesson plans to help you incorporate global learning into your literacy and numeracy teaching. 

Created by specialists with years of teaching and global learning experience, these materials can be used with Key Stage 2 pupils – or customised for Key Stage 3 – and include activities focusing on the issue of poverty, together with teaching guidance, slides and worksheets.

Global learning is used by teachers to support pupils' engagement, knowledge, skills and values. Over 7,800 schools in England are now registered for the GLP, across every local authority – many of which previously had little or no global learning experience. 

‘The GLP provides a wider context for improving standards in core subjects. Children become passionate and engaged, and you, as a teacher, rediscover that spark that drove you to become a teacher in the first place.’ 
Sam Olubodun, Meadow Primary School, Great Sutton, Cheshire

Through the programme they have access to a wealth of free support to help incorporate a global learning element into their teaching, and better prepare their pupils for life in our fast-changing, complex world.

‘Another key impact is helping pupils to see the big picture, making learning more relevant for them.’ 
Helen Cox, Sir John Lawes School, Harpenden

Global learning work can also be used to show evidence of meeting Ofsted inspection requirements, particularly around Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development (SMSC) and ‘British values’.

‘The school uses global education themes very effectively to set pupils’ learning in a worldwide context and broaden their views of the world. This makes the learning more relevant and interesting for pupils, and so it contributes to their enthusiasm for learning...’
Ofsted Inspection report: Buntingsdale Primary School, Shropshire
