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.

The Inspire section of the Courier Mail is published every Tuesday and often features handy resources to teach about global issues. One February 13, 2018 a full page spread showcased the Global Learning Centre and its work providing  training to teachers in Global Citizenship Education. The article gave particular attention to the GLC’s latest PD offering to regional Qld educators, the seminar series, ‘Do We All Belong?’ The Inspire section often provides busy teachers with useful background about global issues  so that they can keep up to date with what is happening globally.
