Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning
(Free training)

The CCGL (Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning) programme, launched in 2018, supports schools to learn about the big issues that shape our world.
Mandy and Ruth are Local CCGL Advisors and can support your school to apply for funding to facilitate visits, events and training as part of the Connecting Classrooms journey.
We can work with schools in Kent, Sussex and Surrey.

You can apply for funding as a cluster of schools or one-to-one school partnership.
