Global Learning Programme Wales

Quality marks and awards

Many schools in Wales have gained national quality marks and awards which have a significant focus on global learning. The Global Learning Programme Wales is designed to link with these awards, either as stepping stones into the GLP-W, or as recognition of progress from involvement with the GLP-W.

Different awards have distinctive strengths: follow the links below to find out more about the awards and how each supports the GLP-W

Geography Quality Mark Awards

The Primary and Secondary Geography Quality Marks are evaluation frameworks that have been adapted specifically for Welsh schools through GLP-W. They particularly support the curriculum, teaching and achievement, enabling subject leaders to raise the standards of geography and global learning in their school. They are linked to the Estyn framework and to the development of ESDGC.

Other awards which support GLP-W include:

If you already have an award, this will help you join the GLP-W as a Network School and use the expertise you’ve already gained to benchmark your strengths and areas for further development in global learning.

For schools wishing to become a GLP-W Lead School, gaining these awards also provides evidence of embedded practice and impact in certain aspects of global learning.
