Welcome to Global Competence in Teacher Education
In a shrinking, more connected world where we all face common challenges, such as those posed by economic recessions, conflicts or climate change, the acquisition of Global Competence has become increasingly important. Countries face increasing challenges, for example the integration of newly arrived peoples through the migration crisis, the rise in nationalism, preparing our youth for life in a digitally interconnected global society, where they face uncertain futures.
The Key Objective of this 3 year Erasmus+ funded project (2019-2022) is to develop future cohorts of educators who are both Globally Competent themselves, but also have the skills to develop Global Competence in their students.
This project is being delivered through a series of activities which can be grouped within the following key areas:
Scoping Study and Curriculum Mapping
Developing Globally Competent Teacher Educators
Raising Awareness with Strategic Leaders in Schools
Teacher CPD Programme
Conference Presentations and Academic Journal Articles
Using the drop down menu under the activities tab, you can keep up to date with our progress on these activities.
