Learning for a more just
and sustainable world

Tools for success

Measuring how successful a global learning experience has been can be difficult. In this project we explored this issue, reflecting on how we could measure changes in values and attitudes and created tools for the classroom which enable teachers to address this.

Working with Kelly McInnes from Northern Star Associates and through collaboration with the teachers, we have produced this set of impact assessment tools which we used to measure impact on both pupils and teachers. The final results have been collated and form the basis of our impact assessment report.

All the teachers taking part in the project were involved in the impact assessment process which consisted of a pupil questionnaire and participative, classroom activities.

We have also made this film where teachers and pupils share their experiences of Global Citizenship.

Are we there yet? A self evaluation framework for Global Citizenship

This resource helps teachers at all levels to identify how far their school has got on the journey towards becoming a 'global school' - one where global citizenship is embedded across the curriculum and throughout the school ethos.

A framework is provided under a series of headings such as Teaching and learning, Staff development and School environment with a seven-point scoring system ranging from 'inadequate' to 'outstanding'. This enables teachers to assess the school's current delivery of global citizenship, and identify which areas they need to develop.
