HEC Global Learning Centre works with schools and the community to promote a global perspective on equality, justice and sustainability in a multicultural and interdependent world.
We create innovative projects that stretch imaginations so that we can co-produce active responses to the most urgent challenges our world faces today.
What is Global Learning?
Global Learning (or global dimension, or Global Citizenship) is concerned with exploring power relationships, inequalities and the interconnections between people and places around the world. It asks us to consider these relationships, inequalities, similarities and differences that exist around our world today and relate these to our own lives. It is not an ‘additional subject’ to cram into an overcrowded curriculum but goes to the heart of what education is for.
HEC Global Learning Centre has developed a framework for helping schools engage in an ongoing process of developing global learning across the whole school.
What we do
Over the past two decades HEC has been involved in many projects and partnerships relating to local and global learning.
As part of our work across London, we engage schools in National Curriculum requirements through the lens of global learning. We have developed Learning in a Global Context, a framework through which schools can develop the global dimension through a practical toolkit, training, input into curriculum planning and access to a wide range of resources. We are also working with partners around issues of sustainability and exploring the challenges and opportunities of school linking.
