ANGEL partners offer free online course in GE for teachers. 

Researchers and ANGEL members Dr Fran Hunt and Dr Nicole Blum, based at ANGEL partner institution the Development Education Research Centre (UCL Institute of Education) have developed a new online global education CPD resource which is accessible to teachers across the world.
