Aimed at teachers in all subjects, and across all age groups, our global citizenship guides introduce the key elements of Oxfam's Curriculum for Global Citizenship, as well as providing case studies outlining best practice in the classroom, activities that can be adapted for use in many curriculum areas, and resources for further reading.

  Education for Global Citizenship A guide for schools  “WE MUST FOSTER GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP. EDUCATION IS ABOUT MORE THAN LITERACY AND NUMERACY. IT IS ALSO ABOUT CITIZENRY.

It draws on more than 50 years of Oxfam’s work with educators, ongoing feedback from teachers and school leaders, and Oxfam’s core beliefs and values. Mindful of how much the world has changed since Oxfam’s Curriculum for Global Citizenship was first published in 1997, Oxfam has worked with educators to review and update our guidance. In a continually shifting global context, our interpretation of what it means to educate for global citizenship is not set in stone. Furthermore, while Oxfam’s Curriculum for Global Citizenship has resonated with educators around the world, it has been developed within the context of formal education in the United Kingdom, and we make no claims for it to be definitive in this or any other context. This guide is therefore meant not to prescribe but to inspire and inform further thinking, discussion and curriculum development. If it succeeds in doing so, it will have fulfilled its purpose.For practical guidance on classroom practice, we recommend that this guide is used alongside its sister Oxfam publication, Global Citizenship in the Classroom: A guide for teachers  . 4 Education for Global Citizenship – A guide for schools Acknowledgements Thanks are due to the following for their advice in the 2015 revision of this guide: Heather Abel, Yvette Allen, Nasrullah Anwar, Clive Belgeonne, Douglas Bourn, Liz Brown, Bill Burson, Susan Bush, Shane Claridge, Helen Cox, William Essilfie, Helen Griffin, Fran Hunt, Avril Keating, Natalya Kan, Ruth Najda, Laura Oxley, Sylvia Paddock, Richard Smith, Lisa Taner, Julie Thorpe, Rob Unwin and the International Development Education Association of Scotland.
