The Global Dimension


GLL_logo_123Learning in a Global Context

HEC Global Learning Centre has developed a framework for supporting schools in preparing young people for life in an increasingly globalised world – Learning in a Global Context.

Whilst each school and classroom will have its own unique setting and needs, the aim of this framework is to support schools as they embed global learning across the curriculum and within the whole school ethos. For this reason we have divided the frame into two areas of focus – Teaching and Learning, and Ethos and Engagement.

The framework includes a series of Guidance leaflets, an online audit ‘How global is your school?’, a planning grid, opportunities for training and a new Learning about … series for primary schools which will be launched in the Spring term 2015.
