School membership

Research has shown that a sustained partnership with your local Development Educational Centre is a very efficient and cost effective way of developing a global ethos across the whole school. We believe that our connection with Gunjur, stretching back for over thirty years puts us in the unique position to engage with a community in change.

We work directly with our member schools to embed global education into your school curriculum. School Membership includes:

  • One free place on an INSET or a classroom workshop or half day support as designated by the school
  • Access to our wealth of online resources – including Lesson Plans, Powerpoints, Photos
  • Full support to establish a school partner link in The Gambia and beyond
  • Priority booking on teacher study visits to The Gambia
  • Half price hire on Gambian artefacts, resources, topic boxes
  • 20% additional training discount
  • Sustained and unlimited email and telephone support

We support teachers in developing the global dimension, to encourage young learners to explore some of the big issues in the world including - social justice, interdependence, diversity, human rights and conflict resolution.


"Being a member of WGEC means we are supported with our global learning across the whole curriculum. Whether we are making a last minute request to borrow resources or booking INSET for a future staff meeting, the WGEC team members are always able to meet our needs or put us in contact with someone else who can. That's real social networking without a flash label and something that makes the team unique."
