Teachers, advisers and colleagues from schools and colleges across the UK and around the world, are invited to join us virtually for our Annual Teachers' and Advisers' CPD week running from 14 - 18 June 2021.

This event will be delivered by Jane Carpenter, freelance Global Learning Educator (Global Thinking) and Local Advisor for the East of England on the British Council Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning programme. The aim of the session is to understand the importance of including global citizenship and sustainable development in your teaching and learn how to integrate it into your lessons.

Through activities and small group discussion, participants will explore differences between international learning and global learning and how to embed global learning/citizenship in all subjects across the curriculum. We will look at how the UN Sustainable Development Goals  (SDG) can be an important vehicle to do this and explore tools and methodologies central to developing critical thinking skills for learning about global issues.

You will have the opportunity to take part in a practical group activity to create an outline of a lesson plan which will include one of the SDGs. You will be signposted to platforms and classroom resources to support global learning/citizenship and teaching around the SDGs.
