JOIN US and explore how to effectively embed the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into your work. Like all of our events, we combine practical ‘hands on’ guides, workshops, discussions, presentations, sharing best practicing sessions and lots of opportunities to network. At this event we will:
- provide an introduction to the SDGs and Scotland’s communities’ and schools’ response so far,
- explore how communities and schools can effectively work together to respond to learning for sustainability and the SDGs.
- Share our Members’ work in short presentations known as ‘pecha kucha’ sessions
- Give Members an opportunity to contribute to a lunchtime ‘market place’
Through workshop discussions we will work together to identify the knowledge, training and other requirements to increase understanding and action on the SDGs in Scotland’s communities and schools.
A programme and further information will be available soon. This is likely to be a popular event so we recommend booking now to avoid disappointment. There is a fee of £20 to cover the cost of all refreshments. Please contact Abi Cornwall if you do not have a source of funding to cover this cost.

Are you passionate about teaching? Do you want to be involved in the something that will energise you, inspire you, challenge your perceptions and even take you out of your comfort zone? Are you ready to accept the learning experience of a lifetime? If the answer is a resounding yes, then Global Learning Partnerships (GLP) is the opportunity for you.
Developed in line with the GTCS Standard for Career-Long Professional Learning (CLPL), GLP is a high-quality, values based CLPL programme delivered over a total of 36 days, spread across 18 months. As part of the programme you will take part in a 30-day summer placement working alongside educators in Rwanda or Uganda to gain an insight into a new culture and education system and provide you with an informed context for teaching global education and LfS. Throughout your GLP journey, you will be exposed to authentic first-hand learning experiences which develop your resourcefulness, resilience, communication and problem-solving skills.
GLP is open to all post-probation classroom teachers in Scotland, from early years through to secondary, and to GTCS practitioners who support the development and delivery of education within local authority departments.
If you are interested, please go to our website for more details (www.glpscotland.org.uk) or contact Kelly Work at firstname.lastname@example.org.
