We hope the new term is going well. We’ve got a lot to share with you, including advice on ways to evaluate your progress, new case studies and ideas to support your global learning journey.
Look out for emails about new resources that will be available later this term. And, as always, we recommend that you use your e-credits as soon as possible. The wide range of CPD courses on offer – both in school or out of school, with and without fixed dates – can be found via the CPD Calendar.
Evaluate your progress
The GLP offers a range of tools to help you and your colleagues set targets, and plan and evaluate your progress. The Action Plan generated on completion of the Whole School Audit not only gives you direction for your global learning activities, but can also help you identify the most appropriate way to spend your e-credits. Completing the Audit for a second time will both help you record your progress and generate a new Action Plan to support future global learning activities.
The easy-to-use Pupil Assessment Tool is an engaging way for pupils to demonstrate their knowledge. As well as helping to measure the impact of your global learning work, it can also generate valuable evidence for Ofsted.
Ideas to support your global learning journey
In addition to the wealth of free resources available on the GLP website, you will also find creative ideas to engage pupils through global learning from each of the GLP Partners, such as Think Global's 'Start the Change' project, which investigates young people’s views on extremism, and their ideas for developing and promoting a more cohesive society.
A range of new case studies from GLP schools are now available, including: Bemerton St John C of E Primary School's review of their 'Good Neighbours Week'; Saxon Primary School's reflection on evaluating and exploring values; and a video on the 'golden thread' of global learning from Egerton Primary School.
