Global Learning Programme Wales

What does a Lead School do?

Global Learning Programme Wales Lead Schools are schools with particular expertise in global learning. As well as exemplifying global learning in their own school, their main role is to be the hub for a network of schools to provide leadership, support and development to help others schools engage with global learning.

Once a school becomes a Lead School, they will engage a network of up to 15 Network Schools who they will support and introduce to the GLP-W.

They share the knowledge required to support development education, programme resources and information about creating change within a school setting with their Network. Lead Schools also work closely with their Network to plan CPD activities and capture evidence of change and progression within the schools.

As a Lead School, schools will:

  • appoint a GLP-W Coordinator
  • lead on recruitment of Network Schools 
  • be the main point of contact for your Network Schools
  • arrange and deliver CPD sessions for their Network
  • gather and provide monitoring information to show the impact of the programme.

The Lead School GLP-W Coordinator will be responsible for:

  • leading your work to embed global learning across all aspects of your Lead School’s practice
  • recruiting, managing and supporting a local network of Network Schools to engage with the GLP-W
  • planning, delivering and reviewing a programme of practice sharing sessions for your Network Schools.
