Our education work in Scotland

Christian Aid's education work helps teachers in Scotland deliver the Global citizenship element of the Curriculum for Excellence through our range of easy-to-use resources.

Our education resources range from 15 minute assemblies to more in-depth education packs which aim to develop a deeper understanding of global issues for pupils.

Our resources

We produce assemblies and resources on a range of topics from climate change, food and farming to natural disasters, poverty and refugees. Our full library of resources is available from our main education website, Learn.

Here is a selection of resources recently produced for use in Scottish schools.

Father's Day assemblies

Our primary assembly for Father's Day explores how fathers in Kenya are being supported to involve their wives and families in decision making.

Our secondary assembly for Father's Day explores how father-to-father support groups in Kenya are enabling men to discuss the decisions that their families and communities face, and the differences that can be seen when women become more involved in decision making.

Fair work

This primary assembly explores how Fairtrade can help people at work, even when they work in remote places. In it we meet Raphael, from Ghana, whose father is a Fairtrade cocoa farmer.

A world of work

This assembly for secondary school pupils considers the world of work, and explores the challenges faced by some young people in pursuing the job of their dreams.


Our new gender resource is aimed at secondary school pupils and contains information, stories and activities to help get your students exploring, debating, challenging and taking part in issues around gender inequality.

Explore the world from your whiteboard!

For a global view of Christian Aid's work, visit our Global Explorers interactive whiteboard resource. This tool brings to life global issues such as access to water and food, and active citizenship.

It features fascinating facts, quizzes, video footage, photos, lesson plans, worksheets and the real-life stories of children all over the world.

Global Learning Programme Scotland

We work with the International Development Education Association Scotland (IDEAS) and other partners to deliver the Global Learning Programme Scotland (GLP-S) which offers teachers free professional learning to clusters, schools and teachers to develop global citizenship across the curriculum and through whole-school activities.
