Birmingham Education Partnership & TIDE~ Global Learning are delighted to announce a new partnership to help schools and young people engage with global discussion.
Global discussion around issues from poverty to climate change plays an important role in the development of our young people. Discussing issues that impact our local and global world can be a powerful vehicle for engaging young people in both debate and the school curriculum.
What is the Global Education Project?
The global issues project is a chance to explore how a variety of issues are represented on both an international and local scale, and how to bring this into the classroom for the benefit of the school.
BEP & Tide~ aim to provide a space to discuss barriers, benefits and beyond. It allows teachers to communicate their experiences and share best practice around the inclusion of global discussion in the classroom and identify how this can underpin the development of the school.
What are we currently doing?
- Developing student leadership projects, using global and local issues as a vehicle
- Compiling the most effective resources that are out there – these will be signposted on the BEP website
- Using the Sustainable Development Goals as a focus
- Celebrating schools that are already achieving amazing things.
