Irish Aid’s National Programme for Development Education
As the national programme for Development Education at post-primary level. Worldwise Global Schools (WWGS) offers a comprehensive range of supports to enable schools to embed DE into their teaching and learning.
DE provides a powerful vehicle through which we can better understand the world we live in, and take action to change it as informed global citizens.
Findings from the Evaluation of WWGS Phase 1
In 2016, an independent, external evaluation was carried out to assess the degree to which the WWGS programme had been successful in meeting its strategic aims. This process involved extensive consultation with programme stakeholders, staff, participants and funder. The summary report resulting from that process can be viewed here.
