Global Learning Guidance Documents

All of these documents offer support both to newcomers to the global learning and those looking to take things further. Some of the official guidance documents are no longer officially sanctioned by the currrent government, but nevertheless still offer a huge wealth of case studies and supporting advice on the global dimension and global learning. These documents often use the term 'global dimension' - we now tend to use 'global learning' as a broader term but they refer to very similar aspects of the curriculum.
