DECSY manages a rich variety of projects involving partnerships with schools and other organisations. These range from national projects such as bringing a global approach to SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) and developing links between schools in the UK and Southern countries based on justice rather than charity (Carbon Partners) to local projects such as developing collections of objects for loan to schools (Critical Objects). Our current partners are the Geographical Association, Sheffield ESCAL (Every Sheffield Child Articulate and Literate) and groups of schools in South Yorkshire. In all projects we seek to work alongside teachers and other educators to enhance global learning.

The Global Learning Programme (GLP)

The Global Learning Programme (GLP)

The GLP is a ground-breaking new programme which will create a national network of like-minded schools, committed to equipping their students to make a positive contribution to a globalised world by helping their teachers to deliver effective teaching and learning about development and global issues at Key Stages 2 and 3.

Gender Equality Charter Mark - EU funded project

Gender Equality Charter Mark - EU funded project

The objective of this EU funded project is to create whole-school change in schools for 13–18 year olds, that will impact on young people’s expectations of gender roles and challenge gender stereotyping through the creation of a Gender Equality Charter Mark (GECM) quality standard and accreditation tool. This tool will enable a school to measure progress in tackling the effects that gender stereotyping still has on pupils in relation to both subject (and career) choices and as a root cause of sexual harassment and gender-based violence in schools and wider society.

Creating a Charter Mark was a key 'next step' idea from the teachers involved in DECSY’s Gender Respect Project. This tool will enable a school to measure progress in tackling the effects that gender stereotyping still has on pupils in relation to both subject (and career) choices and as a root of sexual harassment and gender-based violence in schools and wider society. This project will work with partners developing similar Charter Marks in Hungary and Italy.
Once created, the Gender Equality Charter Mark will be trialled in three secondary schools in each country.

In the near future we hope to secure funding to create a Charter Mark for Primary Schools as well. We are keen to hear from schools interested in taking part in a Primary School pilot phase. Please contact DECSY to express an interest.

This is a three year (2013-2016) project bringing together teachers of pupils aged 4-14 along with creative practitioners and young people to develop engaging, participatory and creative curriculum activities and materials.  These will help children and young people to understand, question and challenge gender inequality and violence in a local-global context.
