If we are to teach for justice and sustainability, then it must be strongly represented in our everyday teaching, learning and assessment.

We support curricular interventions that embed Global Citizenship Education (GCE) in teaching, learning and assessment in Initial Teacher Education (ITE). This is achieved through partnerships approaches with HEIs and through projects led by faculty members. Curricular activities give rise to multimedia Artefacts of Learning that demonstrate pre-service teachers’ engagement with GCE or teacher educators’ innovative practice in GCE.

Core Area: Curriculum


Projects integrate Global Citizenship Education into Initial Teacher Education, facilitating pre-service teachers to explore global development issues. This can be through standalone modules or integrated approaches spanning various education disciplines. Additionally, projects may include staff capacity-building events to facilitate dialogue and knowledge sharing, sustained by annual funding.
