Join over 200 colleagues as we examine topics including…

  • Innovative approaches to inspire interest in STEM
  • Partnership working across schools, further and higher education, and industry

New resource launch: Explore the Global Goals with our free digital packs for primary and secondary schools!

Primary and secondary teachers in Scotland can now download our free digital pack designed to teach young people about the Sustainable Development Goals and to discover ways to address the issues in their own communities and further afield. The digital pack contains a powerpoint, postcards and booklet to keep. Each postcard has an activity for introducing a goal and ideas for exploring it further in the classroom and the interactive powerpoint is jam-packed with eye-catching, engaging and of-the-moment resources your learners will identify with and enjoy.

You could incorporate the materials into a PSE programme, use for subject-specific content or find ideas for developing the John Muir Award and Saltire Award – the possibilities are endless!

PLUS become a Global Goals Champion school!

Global Goals Champions can be run as a school or year group initiative to motivate and inspire young people to find out more about the Goals. As they learn more about individual Goals, young people can collect stamps in their Global Goals Passport. If they collect 7 stamps they achieve a bronze certificate, 12 stamps for silver and 17 stamps for gold.
