Connecting Classrooms

Inset courses

At the WCIA, we believe that Global Learning is fundamental both globally and in our day to day lives. We strive to deliver the highest quality events, training, classroom materials and courses. All our key messages and methodologies are based on sound educational research. Over the past two years, we have worked with the Welsh Government in the development of the Welsh Curriculum, authored high-quality classroom materials and delivered training to thousands of teachers in Wales.

All of our inset courses are interactive and designed as a series of hands-on workshops, sharing best practice, and covering a wide range of skills, competencies and subjects. Our training ranges in length from twilight to two days and is delivered across Wales in the most relevant language for that location. All materials are available bilingually and are freely available to participants electronically for use in school.

We’ve moved our Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning courses online – study at your own pace, supported by reflective and participatory live Zoom sessions.

As part of Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning, we’ll be running free professional development opportunities for teachers and school leaders for the next 3 years.

The new curriculum for Wales requires a transformation in the way education is delivered. This will challenge assumptions and require new methods of delivery, with six areas of learning and experience incorporating all subjects and a cross-curricular approach embedded throughout.

We’ll be offering the following courses that will support the delivery of the new curriculum:

  • Creative contributors (Level 2)
  • Developing ambitions learners and global citizens (level 3)
  • Research skills for the new curriculum (levels 1 and 2)
  • Successful international partnerships (levels 2 and 3)
