What is working and what more is needed?
A needs analysis and consultation was undertaken by Clear Horizon for the Department into global learning and engagement (GL&E) in schools. Over a period of three months from August-October 2021, Clear Horizon held one-on-one and group consultations with 50 Victorian school leaders, teachers, international student coordinators, global education experts and Department representatives, and conducted a horizon scan of the literature relating to emerging ideas that may affect global learning and engagement under COVID normal.
Clear Horizon synthesised the key themes and ideas that emerged through the consultations, workshops with school leaders and horizon scan research to identify the priorities, demand for and interest in GL&E from schools to ensure the Department's continued investment in GL&E in schools is fit for purpose and reflective of demand. The findings are reflected in the Executive Summary below and will provide a framework for future GL&E projects and initiatives.

Supporting Australian schools to build global engagement - Toolkit
The Supporting Australian schools to build global engagement - Toolkit was developed by Monash University and funded by the Australian Government to support the implementation of the National Strategy for International Education 2025, a 10 year plan for developing Australia's role as a global leader in education, training and research.
Released in 2021 the Toolkit provides an up-to-date resource for schools to facilitate global learning and engagement and is framed around seven factors for success:
- a whole-school approach to global engagement
- teacher capacity
- curriculum and pedagogy
- building support for global engagement
- community and parent engagement
- monitoring progress with global engagement
