What is Global Learning?

Global learning is education that puts learning in a global context - ThinkGlobal

Global learning is an approach to learning about development issues through recognising the importance of linking people’s lives throughout the world. It encourages critical examination of global issues and awareness of the impact that individuals can have on these.  

ASE Supported Projects:

Global Learning Programme

ASE is a contributor to a Global Learning Programme, funded by the Department for International Development. The programme consists of KS2 (7-9 years) and KS3 (11-14 years) resources to support the new curriculum.

The Global Learning Programme supports teaching and learning about global issues in key stages 2 and 3. The programme supports teachers to enable students to learn about the challenges our world faces and think critically about how to deal with issues such as climate change and sustainability. It helps students make sense of the world in which they live and to understand their role within a global society. Find out more about the benefits of joining the Global Learning Programme.


ISEE Project

The goal of the I SEE project is to design innovative approaches and teaching modules to foster students’ capacities to imagine the future and aspire to STEM careers. The goal is not only to develop professional skills but also to foster students’ identities as capable persons and citizens in a global, fragile and changing world. Find out more
