Professional Learning

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AT MONTGOMERY DEC

Are you a teacher looking for active, participatory CPD to challenge you and make you think?

Funded by the Global Learning Programme Scotland (GLPS), we offer free sessions on Global Citizenship themes, skills and values to engage with Learning for Sustainability and work with local authorities to ensure that these link to the Curriculum for Excellence and help meet Learning for Sustainability entitlements.

We offer whole and half day sessions or twilights, and work as a small, flexible team, to meet your needs. Many teachers also enjoy attending our informal twilight conversation cafes and from this we hope to build a supportive peer network of motivated global learning practitioners – for details of these cafes please see our News page.

We can also support teachers working on Professional Recognition in Global Citizenship.

To discuss how we can support your Global Learning and Teaching, please email us at montgomerydec@btconnect.com or telephone us: 01224 620111.
