The Global Teachers Award
The GTA is a validated teacher-training programme currently being made available across Ireland and in 3 EU partner-countries. It aims to raise the profile and quality of development education provision in the European Union through the creation of a standardised development education training and award scheme for teachers.
Teachers will be supported and trained in the development of skills and confidence to bring a global perspective to their classrooms, through participatory activities focused on six key themes:
v Global Citizenship
v Social Justice
v Human Rights
v Sustainable Development
The GTA is an EU-supported training programme which will progress over 3 Levels.
Level 1 is currently available and involves a six hour module validated by Liverpool Hope University (UK). This training in Ireland is currently being offered free of charge.
Key global concepts – exploring the fundamentals of education for global citizenship
Perspectives – space to reflect on our own assumptions, and skills to encourage pupils to question theirs.
Approaches to learning – developing critical thinking skills
Practical ideas – for use in the classroom and the curriculum.
Measuring change – tools for evaluating impact
