Students from Ireland Wood Primary school receive their ‘Commitment to Global Learning’ certificate from Councillor Jane Dowson, Leeds City Council’s deputy executive member for children and families, and Paul Brennan, Leeds City Council’s deputy director of children’s services.

Leeds DEC has recognised nine schools across West Yorkshire for leading the way in Global Learning. Each school has written a Global Learning Charter and taught students to lead Peer Education workshops on Fairtrade, Waste and Garment Workers. As well as educating students, Peer Education workshops such as these promote personal development, inquiry and independent research.

“The benefits of the Global Learning Charter is that it gives schools the opportunity to spell out their commitment to Global Learning and involves the students in deciding how they want to implement it across the school” says Global Fairness project co-ordinator Hannah Langdana.
