Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning
(Free training)

The British Council’s Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning programme, 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.

The training deepened my understanding of global learning and ways of incorporating it within the curriculum.

Shared Ground: A CPD for Schools on Teaching about Migration

Two afternoons: 15th and 22nd November 2021, 1.30-4.30pm Online

The course is approved by the British Council for delivery within Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning (CCGL) continuing professional development offer. This means that there is funding available for you as an educator working in a state-funded school to complete the course.

Every Shared Ground Migration CPD includes a range of activities. These all support the learning outcomes which are that you, as a teacher or TA, will:

  • Gain deeper awareness and understanding of the realities and complexities of Migration
  • Have reflected on their own understanding, views and attitudes towards Migration, considering multiple perspectives
  • Have increased confidence to explore attitudes and experiences within their school community and understand how to create open spaces for dialogue and critical thinking
  • Explore a range of effective teaching resources and methodologies to nurture learners’ values, skills and attitudes for understanding, engaging with and acting positively on issues around Migration
  • Have a range of new approaches to support learners to understand global and historical inequality, become more open to difference, identify and challenge racist attitudes and therefore be more able to build relationships based on equity and trust
  • Have critically applied new ideas and approaches within their own school contexts
  • Have gained tools to evaluate teaching methods and the impact they have

This course is also available as a funded whole school training with a minimum of 4 teachers.

I was inspired to think more about my ability to positively influence pupil’s opinions on the world around them.
