Building your GCE (Starter Schools/ Teachers) Workshop 2022
This training is designed as a follow-on training from the ‘Starter Workshop’ to learn more about a critical approach to GCE. Included is a recap of the starter training and last’s years theme of ‘Degrowth’. If you haven’t watched the ‘Starter Workshop’ yet, we suggest watching this first here.
In this training, we look at the Guiding Principles of GCE, a soft versus critical approach to GCE, how to ‘Dig Deeper’ and how to scaffold our activities with a critical approach in mind. It includes some activities and group work to move from theory to practice.
Access here the recording of the ‘Building your GCE’ training.
