Global School Partnerships (GSP) is a DfID funded programme which provides advice and guidance, professional development opportunities and grants to help develop school partnerships between schools in the UK and schools in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean.

DDE is an accredited trainer to help teachers enhance global learning through patnership links. If your school is interested in this programme and has not previously accessed any funding or workshops to support global learnig from the British Council then you may be eligible for a GSP Starter Grant of £250. This would pay for a qualified trainer from DDE to run an Inset with your whole school staff.

Here are some comments made by those who have attended Global School Partnerships Inset in Devon:

  • "I plan to introduce more global thinking within my class - trying to enhance children's understanding of global issues."
  •  "This has reinforced my positive thoughts about the benefits of a partnership for the pupils. It would broaden their views of life in another country."
  • "This inset reinforced and reassured me that it is not a 'charitable' link but mutually beneficial; educational and purposeful."
  • "What were highlights for you? The whole of the workshop in particular Sue's firsthand, real experience to explain and relate to our questions."
  • "The practical exercises were a 'real eye opener'."
  • "I appreciated the chance to reflect on wider aspects of international work."
