Resources and Tools
WWGS has a range of tools on offer to help guide and support schools in engaging with Global Citizenship Education. Please see below for a selection of these tools.
1) Subject Guidelines (Linked to the Curriculum):

2) Self Assessment Tool (SAT):
This tool allows you to track and measure the learning arising from GCE. It allows you to track the progress teachers and students are making in GCE.
You may use either the online or paper version SAT this year.
The online SAT tool is available here (or click the first button).

5) Case Studies:
WWGS has captured some valuable feedback on good practise Global Citizenship Education being undertaken in a number of WWGS supported schools.
