This module aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills to broaden their thinking on education beyond the United Kingdom by examining the concepts of global trends in education. This will enable them to better understand the domestic scene by situating it within an international setting. It will also help them to engage with the complex world of international education policy and systems around the world. The module will consider the work of international organisations, such as UNESCO and UNICEF. Through discussion of development, globalisation and the legacy of colonisation, the module will provide opportunities for students to compare and contrast systems abroad with their own. It will draw on students' own experiences of education and schooling, and add to their critical understanding of education and its significance for the well-being of individuals within society.
