2017-2018: At the request of the Queensland Government’s Department of Premier and Cabinet the GLC delivered the program ‘Global Citizenship Education: a passport to social cohesion’. This is a fully funded professional development program for Queensland educators. As part of the Queensland Government’s Connected Communities: Action Plan 2016-18 it is designed to build the capability of front-line educators in the area of social cohesion and understanding of global citizenship. The program consists of 6 key components. We look forward to shaping the next phase of this program for delivery in 2019.
