Project – Teach Global Ambassadors
Countries – Lithuania, Scotland
Timescale – 2013 – 2015
Goal – To support the impact of the Teach Global Ambassadors project between Scottish and Lithuanian schools.
Approach – The Teach Global Ambassadors (TGA) project supported teachers in Scottish and Lithuanian secondary schools to address the challenges faced by young people in an increasingly interdependent and unequal world.
The project aimed:
- to build teachers’ confidence and capacity to incorporate global citizenship (GC) into their teaching
- to enable them to support pupils to become ‘active global citizens’
- to equip them to lead on GC activities within their schools and local authorities. The project ran between 2013 and 2015 and involved 30 teachers and their local authorities in two cohorts.
Northern Star worked with partners in Lithuania and Scotland to assess the impact of the project on pupils, teachers and local authorities
Result – The TGA project has had a transformational effect on teachers and their classroom practice. It has initiated and supported the process of embedding global citizenship in local authorities and has made some impact on pupils understanding of their place in the world. The support provided to teachers by the project was high quality and highly valued.
The impact assessment we delivered helped the project to improve as it progressed and capture the learning to be shared with others. We developed a series of of recommendations for future projects to ensure learning is embedded.
