Support from International Non-Governmental Organisations
- Support from International Non-Governmental Organisations
There are a number of organisations working in the field of international development, ranging from running programmes overseas to campaigning for change. Many of these organisations support schools in engaging with global learning.
Through the GLP, schools are being encouraged to consider how the support of such organisations can help them develop global learning pupil outcomes across the school.
International non-governmental organisations (INGOs) can provide services such as:
- web resources
- professional development opportunities for teachers
- active citizenship projects for young people
- whole-school models and frameworks.
These agencies can also support schools in working with their wider community through active projects for young people, connecting with local staff and helping to establish learning-based school links.
To support schools working with INGOs, the GLP provides:
- a document for all schools which outlines:
- the forms of support available
- how to maximise the benefit of working with an INGO
- case studies of schools who have worked successfully with such organisations.
- a table outlining the different forms of support available from some INGOs working with schools
- materials for delivering a twilight session to support teachers to learn about the work of INGOs and how this might fit with learning around GLP. This workshop has been developed in partnership with several INGOs offering support to schools
- free twilight sessions run by Oxfam, providing advice and support for working with INGOs. Visit the Oxfam website for more details.
