Why take part?

The GLP enriches the learning process, connects learning and brings an exciting new dimension to existing subjects, such as literacy and maths. It develops young people's understanding of global issues and empowers them as global citizens to take action for a fair and sustainable world.

The programme contributes to the achievement of curriculum requirements and the development of a positive ethos, while also encouraging schools to engage with their community and forge local and international connections with other schools. Every school that signs up is supported throughout their journey by the GLP team as they adopt a whole school approach to global learning.
