Development Education - Workshops

GOAL offers free Development Education workshops to primary schools. These workshops use a variety of active and participatory learning methodologies to explore global issues and give students a voice and a forum to critically engage. Our curriculum-linked workshops also motivate and support students to take action for change.

Workshops for Primary Schools

This year we are offering two exciting workshops for primary schools. These workshops are:

  • Suitable for 3rd to 6th class (max 35 per group)
  • Approximately 90 minutes in duration
  • Linked to GOAL’s Development Education resources
  • Free of charge

Please note that:

  • As the workshops are drama-based, appropriate space is needed (e.g. a hall, library or cleared classroom)
  • A teacher is required to stay with the class for the duration of the workshop
  • Schools will be asked to complete a brief survey with participating pupils prior to the GOAL visit
  • Workshops are subject to availability – early booking is advised
