To get the most from Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning, teachers and school leaders are supported with free, high-quality curriculum-focussed professional development opportunities. These sessions will equip teachers, educators and leaders with the skills and practices needed to integrate global learning themes into existing lessons.

Our training has been specifically written to support the requirements of the Northern Ireland Curriculum and can be delivered either virtually or face-to-face - or through blended learning approaches to best suit your school's needs.

We have tailored our training to ensure you are provided with:

  • Practical global learning activities that can be delivered to students virtually and through blended learning approaches; including outdoor learning
  • Activities for enhancing student resilience and wellbeing in a global learning context

What Fits with Global Learning?

Our training may be of particular interest to teachers responsible for the WAU dimension in primary schools. 

In post-primary, teachers of Geography, STEM subjects, LLW and Religious Education may also find these topics to be of particular relevance.

Whether you are a cluster of schools or an individual school, select a CPD/TPL course that matches your priorities and we'll do the rest. 

Our Global Learning Course Facilitators

Our global learning courses are facilitated by experienced freelance trainers.

There should be a minimum of 6 teachers taking part on these sessions, but if your school has fewer numbers, get in touch to discuss your individual requirements as we may still be able to facilitate the course for you. Alternately, you could consider teaming up with a neighbouring school or shared education partner.

It may also be possible for classroom assistants to undertake this training, provided they're committed to completing the whole course.

Global learning elements are found right throughout the curriculum, so any teacher with any degree of interest can apply.

How to Deepen your Global Learning knowledge

For teachers who have already completed a Course at Intermediate level and want to explore global learning in more depth, we offer 'Global Learning for a Fair & Sustainable World' at Advanced level. For the Advanced course, teachers can choose from a range of workshop options. 

For more information or advice on any of our TPL activities or to talk through your requirements, contact us at the Centre for Global Education on 028 90241879 or email

We look forward to bringing the world into your classroom.
