Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning

From 2018-2021, the Centre for Global Education's Global Learning Schools NI team worked with the British Council and UK Aid to deliver a government funded programme called Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning (CCGL). The programme supported teachers and school leaders in improving teaching, while offering students the skills and knowledge they need to make a positive contribution to a fair and sustainable world.

Through professional development for teachers, partnerships with other schools (locally and globally) and action-packed classroom resources, CCGL supported the Northern Ireland Curriculum in developing teachers on a range of global learning topics.
