RISC provides tailor-made training for schools and school networks across Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Surrey. From twilight sessions to whole days, from Global Maths to Global Values, we can support you and your colleagues in delivering effective Global Citizenship.
Our training can be ‘stand alone’, or sessions can be combined as a sequence of twilights, a half-day or a whole day programme, which can take place in your school or at RISC’s conference centre in Reading. All sessions are interactive and include a range of Global Citizenship resources. If your school is registered with The Global Learning Programme you can spend your e-credits on training and support from RISC.
The Global Teachers’ Award (GTA) is a national award supporting teachers in developing skills, confidence and practical approaches to embed global learning in the curriculum and promote informed, active Global Citizenship with pupils. The Level 1 course was launched in autumn 2011 and Level 2 in December 2014.RISC’s Education Team is validated, through Liverpool Hope University, to deliver the award. Although its for individual teachers, GTA training (Level 1) can be booked for your whole school staff and delivered on an INSET day, or as a series of twilights. If your school has a small staff, why not team up with another school to share the costs?
RISC’s training for ITE institutions includes ongoing work with trainee teachers at Reading University, Oxford University and Oxford Brookes. We regularly deliver sessions for all three institutions and welcome opportunities to work with trainees.
Use RISC's newly published and innovative toolkit for measuring attitudinal change: discover activities for measuring our impact, as teachers, on pupils’ attitudes. Discuss how we can use what we find out to support the embedding of global learning. The session includes a copy of the resource for each school taking part.
Discover exciting opportunities to deliver Global Citizenship through Maths. Hands on activities using artefacts, books, images and online resources as the starting point for the development of mathematical thinking and language. The session includes time to consider a wide range of resources to bring social justice and sustainability into your Maths work.
