Supporting the Standards: the Global Dimension in Initial Teacher Education and Training

This handbook is for Initial Teacher Education and Training (ITET) tutors, school based mentors, ITET students and Continuing Professional Development providers. It demonstrates how a global dimension can be embedded in ITET provision, and will help tutors and mentors incorporate appropriate knowledge, values and practice to support learning and teaching in an increasingly globalised society.
