Last year I led the development of Our global future, the Association of Teachers and Lecturers' international policy and strategy. It brings greater coherence to ATL’s existing international efforts at the same time as identifying new areas of development and growth.
It sets out three goals for the union’s globally focused work, including:
- supporting the professional development and global awareness of our members
- working with education unions overseas to achieve their goals and ours
- contributing to the global dimensions of educational policy and supporting member engagement and activism on global issues.
I’m now responsible for implementing these goals. There’s a link to the full document below.
