DECSY has been working in Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster and Barnsley for 40 years promoting Global Learning: an approach to education that increases understanding of complex global issues, such as inequality, conflict, climate change, migration and different world views.
We are excited to be joining the ForgeCPD partners community to provide up to date quality content and training opportunities for teachers and schools.
Global learning helps equip children and young people to live successfully and responsibly in an interconnected world. Global learning is closely related to ‘the Global Dimension in the Curriculum’ and ‘Education for Global Citizenship’. Global learning is not an ‘additional subject’ to cram into an overcrowded curriculum, but goes to the heart of what education is for:
“The global dimension explores what connects us to the rest of the world. It enables learners to engage with complex global issues and explore links between their own lives and people, places and issues throughout the world. The global dimension can relate to both developing and developed countries. It helps learners to imagine different futures and the role they can play in creating a fair and sustainable world.” The National Curriculum
