Strengthening Your GCE programme-Established Schools 

Thursday 14th October

This workshop is for teachers who have been doing GCE for more than a year. Continuous Professional Development and Learning is particularly important for a discipline like Global Citizenship Education so it's important to stay up to date with Theory and Practice so ensure you are on the right track. We can cover every global justice theme under the sun but if the approach isn't right we could be in danger of sending our students down the wrong track. There are two time slots.
