School development planning and support for the 2013/14 session

We have supported several primary schools this year as they develop various local/global curricular aspects, such as:

  • Rights Respecting Schools
  • Fair Trade
  • Whole school Global Citizenship improvement-planning and auditing 

Teachers we worked with said:

'Content was perfect - lots of practical ideas to pursue in the classroom. Entire session inter-active, had you thinking the whole time' (Primary teacher, Aberdeenshire)

'My main learning outcome was how to form a curriculum plan/progression on Global Citizenship' (Primary teacher, Aberdeenshire)

 Can we help your school in 2013-14?
