The Global Teacher Project works with Initial Teacher Education and Training (ITET) staff to help them develop courses with a global dimension. The Project is able to design training tailored to particular institutional needs and support staff currently bringing global dimensions into their courses. Training can also be offered directly to student teachers and classroom mentors.
The Project is working alongside other organisations with similar interests to develop a national strategy on global perspectives in ITET.
The Project organises occasional seminars and conferences to bring together individuals and organisations with an interest in global perspectives in ITET. A key focus is the sharing of ideas and developing strategies for change.
Working in partnership with a number of other organisations, the Project produces a termly newsletter which reflects the range of global work in ITET throughout the UK. The newsletter is free to Project participants.
The Global Teacher Project is an initiative of the World Studies Trust, an educational charity set up in 1988. Its purpose is to promote within education the knowledge, attitudes and skills that young people need in order to practise social and environmental responsibility in a multicultural society and an interdependent world.
