March News Letter

A great start to a busy new year! With many exciting things cooking up, like the Global Teachers Conference, we are looking forward to a full feast of opportunities. Bon Appetit! 

Global Teachers Learning Conference 

This conference for teachers at Key Stages 2 & 3 will demonstrate how bringing global learning into your school can support you to meet your requirements under the Prevent duty, support your OFSTED attainment and help you achieve SATS targets for your pupils.

Working with expert trainers (including Jane Yates & Vikki Pendry), teachers will explore practical ways of bringing global learning alive in the classroom.

Work Yet to Come

We have recently heard from Eleanor from the National Center for Citizenship and Law, soon to be the National Justice Museum Education, and we are excited  about possible future opportunities to work with them. They do a lot of work with schools across the country; in Manchester, Chester, Bradford, Nottingham,  London, Liverpool are only a few places where you can find their programs! The NCCL specializes in providing an out of classroom experience for students to learn about citizenship and justice in the courtroom. Their mission statement is "We inspire young people to learn from the past, act in the present and change their future.

Back to School:
What the American Education System can learn from England
By Jack Loia
Working in education in the United Kingdom it is hard to look from a global prospective and not be worried about the struggle to prevent radicalisation in the class room. England makes leaps and bounds to address this in primary, secondary and higher education, but one country in particular makes a great conversation starter, the United States. I will address in a series of excerpts on how the US prevents radicalization in education in comparison to the United Kingdom. Some of the questions I hope to answer are does the US have anything right now that works like the Prevent act and will they adopt one, what is the US doing right now to counter extremism, but mainly, what will the United States be looking at in the future and how can they learn from the United Kingdom? Among other issues, there is the fear that Donald Trumps actions as the new Commander and Chief will open Pandora’s Box on domestic violence. In education, Betsy DeVos - billionaire, philanthropist, and strong supporter of the far right - has been nominated as the Head of the Education Department; in the eyes of many this was not a prudent choice. The real questions comes, what is America planning on doing to help keep its students from home grown radical extremism.
