Two Educational Psychologists from our Stonehaven team became the first EPs to take part in the Global Learning Partnership in summer 2018. Sponsored by The Wood Foundation and supported by local authorities sending staff, GLP aims to increase Global Citizenship and Sustainable Learning. The project saw our psychologists work alongside many teaching colleagues from Aberdeenshire and across Scotland, in remote villages in Rwanda.
Based within the country for a month, the EPs supported CLPL opportunities in schools working alongside teachers and delivering inputs on topics such as Cognitive skills, Person Centred Planning, Active Learning and Effective questioning, to name but a few. The experience was hugely enriching and rewarding for all and both psychologists are currently working to help assess the impact this work has on the children back here in Scotland, when taught by a GLP graduate teacher.
