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 to co-produce active responses to the most urgent challenges our world faces today.
What is Global Learning?
Global Learning, or Global Citizenship Education, aims to empower learners to engage and assume active roles locally, nationally and globally, to face and resolve global challenges and ultimately to become proactive contributors to a more just, peaceful and sustainable world. It builds on peace and human rights education and emphasizes the need to foster the knowledge, skills, values, attitudes and behaviours that allow individuals to experience a sense of belonging to the global community and to take informed decisions.
Global Learning is a key element of Target 4.7 of the Sustainable Development Goal 4 on Education.
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.
