Global interconnectivity has quickly become one of the most important topics for the international community. With this in mind, GAP offers three different resources focused on the subject of Global Citizenship:
Action on Global Citizenship Teacher Toolkit
Action on Global Citizenship is GAP’s BRAND NEW Teacher Toolkit containing 8 chapters walking you through the Sustainable Development Goals and Global Justice. Within the resource, you will find 24 of our favourite activities fully-planned and resourced.

The training will focus on how to use the resource in your classroom and how to teach your students how to become champions in Global Citizenship.
Within bespoke training you will:

- Benefit from peer to peer learning
- Make links to curriculum and CSPE specification
To facilitate this, throughout the 3 hours we will use peer learning methodologies, giving you time to reflect, share, and learn from your peers.

Action on Global Citizenship School Projects
Lastly, we offer students a fully funded action based programme over the school year. Our facilitators will spend 3 sessions with your students to create an engaging campaign around their chosen theme of Global Citizenship and the UN Global Goals (SDGs).
To start, students are walked through the process of creating an impactful campaign on a sustainability issue they feel strongly about. For instance, students are empowered to lead change from within the school by interacting with school management.
As a result, students and management work together to implement sustainable change throughout their school and thus gain a deeper understanding of the intricacies of policy creation.
These projects work closely with the following curriculum links:
