Global Learning Programme Wales

Mike Mainwaring / Nigel Cram

We provide training on the UNCRC, protection, participation and provision of rights; how this affects children globally, in the UK, nationally and locally; what schools and school councils can do to realise rights for children at these levels.  Our training is interactive, experiential and developmental and uses a range of methods to make connections between whole school experience and the relationships between local and global charities and communities.  Our training will provide a better understanding of global rights and the issues of globalisation along with how network teachers and schools can contribute to sustainability and greater understanding of world issues such as poverty.  The key theme of globalisation resonates through everything we deliver covering topical issues such as the status of refugees, the variations in the implementation of the UNCRC from country to country.   Other activities include looking at children rights issues in relation to pupil's clothes such as where are they made; by whom and whether they use child labour.

The key focus is on teachers working with pupils to plan and run global activities and encourage pupils to research organisations linked to children across the globe linked through activities based upon the experiences of some of those children sleeping rough and Fairtrade.
