From Fair Trade to understanding the Rights of a Child , OASES can help your children appreciate the wider world around them and their place within it.
Global learning is concerned with teaching and learning about global issues, events and perspectives. It is not a subject but an approach which combines active and experiential activities to encourage a critical thinking approach.

Help pupils learn about the challenges the world faces and think critically about how to deal with challenges such as poverty, inequality and sustainability.
OASES provides support for teaching and learning about global issues through professional development, pupil workshops, enrichment days and global citizenship network meetings.

Why teach global learning to children and young people?
Every child arrives in school with some level of global awareness and understanding, thanks to an increasingly interdependent world.
Research has shown that children as young as three have already formed ideas about people, cultures and countries.
In our teaching, this means recognising that ‘the global’ is not only ‘out there’ – but it is wherever children live. This offers learners great scope for exploring their commonality with others.

"The Global Learning Programme will teach young people about some of the challenges the world faces, supporting teachers to help students think critically about issues such as development, security, trade and sustainability. I hope that this knowledge will inspire children to grow up and run the global businesses and organisations of the future, investing in the world we want."
