Global Education

Global Learning

Global learning is a term used to define aspects of the whole school curricula that relate to people’s place within the wider-world, their relationships with others, their histories, their presents and futures. Global learning connects the local to the global and advocates that people throughout the world are agents in interconnected, sustainable and thoughtful living.

The 8 overlapping concepts that global learning has at its heart:

· global citizenship

· sustainable development

· interdependence

· social justice

· conflict resolution

· diversity

· values and perceptions

· human rights

At The Vineyard we are committed to developing these areas with the aim to prepare our pupils for a future characterised by globalisation. Below are listed some of the ways in which we are currently delivering aspects of global education.
