What We Do

Policy and Practice

Policy & Practice: A Development Education Review is a bi-annual, peer reviewed, open access journal published by the Centre for Global Education and funded by Irish Aid and Concern Worldwide.

Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning Programme

Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning (CCGL) supports teachers and school leaders to improve teaching, giving students the knowledge, skills and attitudes they need to make a positive contribution to a fair and sustainable world. Through professional development for teachers, partnerships with other schools locally and globally, and engaging classroom resources, CCGL helps teachers meet the objectives of the Northern Ireland Curriculum.

Our Work in Palestine

The Centre has been working in the Gaza Strip since 2011 in partnership with a Palestinian Non-Governmental Organisation called the Canaan Institute which specialises in training, capacity-building and education at a community level.
