The Wood Foundation’s Global Learning Partnerships (GLP) initiative, which involves a month-long summer placement in rural and city regions in Rwanda or Uganda upskilling educators in the country, enhances participants’ innovation, leadership and creativity skills.
The programme is accredited by the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS), as well as being endorsed by Education Scotland. It is an 18-month programme which, alongside the placement, includes training and debrief weekends, support towards accreditation in Global Education within Learning for Sustainability and access to a collaborative professional network.
Georgea Hughes, Programme Manager at The Wood Foundation, said:
“We are incredibly proud to have worked with inspirational education practitioners who are having an enormous impact in empowering Scotland’s young people with the skills, confidence and awareness to be the active, critically-enquiring citizens of today and the future.
“GLP is a unique professional learning opportunity for those interested in harnessing the opportunities afforded by Learning for Sustainability and Global Education.
