The Wood Foundation’s Global Learning Partnerships (GLP) programme has been reaccredited by the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS) with the award Professional Recognition in Learning for Sustainability (LfS).
The immersive professional and personal learning and development programme, which empowers leaders of LfS, includes a month-long placement in Uganda and Rwanda. More than 100 practitioners from 17 Scottish local authority regions have collaborated with educators in the countries with sustainable, context-driven approaches to learning and teaching.
There are several interventions in advance and after the placement to support practitioners prepare for, and reflect upon, their achievements, growth, and learning.
The GTCS panel was impressed by the personal learning experience the programme offers, as well as the collaboration that is prevalent throughout its activities.
Georgea Hughes, Programme Manager at The Wood Foundation, said:
“This reaccreditation is testament to the incredible achievements of our network – a group of practitioners who truly grasp opportunities for growth, learning, innovation, and collaboration. Empowering them through lived experience, supporting them on their journeys, and harnessing this incredible network is driving the long-term sustainability and impact of the programme.
