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 - Introductory, Intermediate and Advanced. 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 three courses on offer: Teacher as Researcher (Introductory level); Setting up and maintaining equitable and sustainable partnerships (Intermediate level and Advanced level); Global Learning: Education for a Fair & Sustainable World (Intermediate and Advanced levels). For the latter course on Global Learning, teachers can choose from a range of workshop options. To view these and to submit a training request form, click on the tabs to the left. 

We can deliver a course for your school or cluster (minimum of 6 participants) on dates and times to suit you.  If your school has fewer than 6 teachers please contact us to discuss your individual requirements. 

You can book a Global Learning: Education for a Fair & Sustainable World Intermediate level course here.
