Global Learning & Skills Partnership
Here at Global Learning & Skills Partnership, we are driven by a single goal; to promote education for global citizenship to help bring about a more just, equitable and sustainable world to benefit all.
We strive to build productive relationships with stakeholders and work in partnership with others to accomplish our mission.
GlaSP is involved European partnership working, with a focus on the Erasmus + programme of the European Commission in the field of youth and adult education. Current projects include:
Learning Mobility of Individual- Key Action 1
These projects provide opportunities for educators and youth workers to participate in training or teaching activities in other countries. GLaSP is currently coordinating 2 such projects on behalf of a consortium of small organisations.
Strategic Partnership in Youth:
Y-EUTH-PACT! - An Erasmus + Strategic Partnership project that aims to improve the quality of youth work by increasing the capacity of youth workers to undertake impact assessment of youth work on local communities. By so doing the project will contribute to the increasing level of recognition of youth work s a social engine for a stronger and better European society.
Strategic Partnerships in Adult Education:
This project is about digital skills. It aims to develop strategies for delivering digital skills to disadvantaged adults including the formulation of digital competency frameworks for adults and adult educators so they can develop the relevant digital competencies.
Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship (ESDGC).
This project focuses on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It aims to help adults understand the key sustainable development issues and help adult educators improve both their knowledge and pedagogic competences in education for sustainable development and global citizenship.
The Bigger Picture
The Bigger Picture is an Erasmus + Strategic Project that aims to strengthen the capacity and ability of organisations providing learning opportunities to adults by empowering them to reflect the global dimension in their work with adults. The project is developing global competence frameworks for (a) adults and (b) adult educators that stipulate the global competences tat the respective group so they are better able to navigate the increasingly interdependent and interconnected world.
Financial Education for Educators (FEES)
FEES is an Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership project that aims to build capacity in organisations providing financial education by empowering the organisations and their staff to deliver high quality training in financial and economic literacy. It focuses on the training and preparation of adult financial educators and is developing a financial competence framework and training programme to equip adult educators to deliver financial education.
Education and Training
With our organisation’s mission to make everyone a global citizen, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with this challenge, and show how global and international development issues impact on all of us, no matter where in the world we live. We organise events such as lectures, seminars, workshops, awareness sessions and discussion groups for the general public to learn about, discuss and engage with global, international and sustainable development issues.
We also provide opportunities for educators and youth practitioners of consortium partners to undertake training and teaching assignments in other European countries.
