Why should you use these resources?

These Teaching and Learning Units (TLUs) have been written especially for the project.

They have been mapped with the curriculum for PSHE, Citizenship, SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) and British values, and play a vital part in supporting both teachers and pupils to become more aware of these often challenging issues. As part of the project, teachers have monitored the classroom use of the resources and have provided evaluations and pupil feedback on the content.

Using these resources will help your pupils consider a range of challenging issues such as:

  1. How does gender inequality impact on women’s lives around the world?
  2. Why is it important that women are involved in leadership and decision making?
  3. How will the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) help to improve the lives of people around the globe?
  4. How do we ensure that no-one will be left behind in 2030?
  5. How will we develop responses to the impact of Climate Change?

How will these resources help teachers?

These lessons have been designed to save teachers time by providing topical, relevant information with engaging stimulus. Teachers will have a lesson from start to finish that includes, facts, images and relevant interactive activities.

Pupils will benefit from these resources as the information is presented to them in a way that encourages thought, reflection and action. Young people are invited to really think about the critical issues that face the world as we move towards 2030. Through taking part in these lessons, pupils will understand the value of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to them and the wider world.

What are we hoping to achieve?

  • To give free and relevant resources that can be used in the classroom by non-specialist teachers in a range of circumstances e.g. PSHE/Citizenship/RE/MFL/Geography
  • To benefit pupils by giving them topics to reflect on, with stimulating pictures and clips and challenge their current thinking about issues such as Climate Change
  • To help trainees or newly qualified teachers feel confident about developing global learning in their classroom
  • To enhance existing curriculum areasĀ 
  • To support difficult conversations on controversial issues
  • To reflect the values and ethos of schools/teachers arounds these issues
  • To get teachers excited about learning that focuses on developing confidence and critical thinking skills in young people
  • To widen your perspective of teaching and develop your professional experience and expertise around global learning
  • To benefit local communities by raising awareness of issues to do with Economic Migration, Asylum Seekers, Climate Change, Gender and Women and International Inequalities
