This Training of Trainers has been specifically designed for Adult & Community Education (ACE) Practitioners to deepen their understanding of Global Citizenship Education (GCE) and to enhance skills in incorporating GCE into professional practice and to be leaders in transformative change.

Irish Aid (2021) defines Global Citizenship Education as:

…a lifelong educational process, which aims to increase public awareness and understanding of the rapidly changing, inter-dependent and unequal world in which we live. By challenging stereotypes and encouraging independent thinking, GCE helps people to critically explore how global justice issues interlink with their everyday lives and how they can act to build a better world.

You can find out more about all of the work of Saolta on our website, here.

Using transformative and experiential learning techniques, this training creatively explores a variety of global issues with ACE practitioners.

Issues such as poverty, human rights, equality, globalisation, conflict, sustainability, systems thinking, social change will feature strongly.

This edition will have a creative element and will equip participants with the skills and tools needed to incorporate GCE into their professional practice.
