 Global Citizenship... a key cross-curricular theme and is fully embedded across Experiences and Outcomes.

Both GTCS and the Scottish Government have significantly strengthened their commitment to Global Citizenship under the umbrella term of Learning for Sustainability.  In line with the new Professional Standards every practitioner, school and education leader should demonstrate Learning for Sustainability in their practice.

In addition, a curriculum based on Global Citizenship is core to the Rights Respecting School Award.
