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

Our training has been written specifically to support the requirements of the Northern Ireland Curriculum and is offered at three levels of progression. Whether a cluster of schools or an individual school, you can select a CPD course to match your group’s priorities thanks to our range of flexible options. Completion of the school self-evaluation and cluster self-evaluation will help you to identify training needs and relevant courses that best meet the needs of your group.

At present, there are two courses on offer: Teacher as Researcher (Level 1) and Global Learning: Educating for a Fair and Sustainable World (Levels 2 and 3). For the Level 2 course you can choose two thematic workshops from a range of options plus a Sharing Practice workshop. 

We can deliver a course for your school or cluster (minimum of 4 participants). Alternatively, individual teachers can register for our scheduled courses. To see our list of upcoming Level 2 workshops for primary teachers please visit
