Global Teachers Award

GTA flyerA new national Global Teachers Award (GTA) has been launched by the Consortium of Development Education Centres.

The Award aims to support teachers in developing skills, confidence and practical approaches to incorporate global learning into the curriculum and promote informed, active global citizenship with pupils. The Award consists of a series of training courses with the one-day Level 1 course launched in autumn 2011 and Levels 2 and 3 to follow.

DDE now has four validated trainers who will be delivering the Level 1 course. Each Level 1 course consists of a day's training plus a twilight to be held at the Global Centre, Exeter Community Centre, 17 St David's Hill, Exeter, EX4 3RG.

DDE has successfully run four GTA courses, further sessions are in preparation, please contact us if you would like details on the next available courses or look under Teacher Professional Development Workshops.

The Award will investigate and explore different models of what education is for; identify different frameworks of global learning; explore issues of diversity; focus on critical literacy; investigate what we mean by active global citizenship and identify tools that can be used to know if global learning is having an impact in the classroom and school. See also the Global Teachers Award website for further details. ...More
