    The Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards (BOSTES) has recognised that to live and work successfully in the diverse 21st century world, students need to be equipped with knowledge and understanding, skills and processes, values and attitudes that help them to successfully navigate such diversity. In order to achieve this, BOSTES has included the Australian curriculum cross curriculum priorities and general capabilities, and has identified additional, essential content to be integrated into all Key Learning Areas.

    In NSW this is called Learning across the curriculum. The five global education learning emphases complement the BOSTES Learning across the curriculum and together work toward the goal of active and informed citizenship for all students.

    The Global Education Schools Network Program (GESNP) develops dynamic communities of learning. This program assists teachers to integrate a global perspective in their classroom practice to address the BOSNSW syllabuses.

    Teaching with a global perspective broadens students’ outlook to become active, involved citizens of the global community. There are five global education learning emphases. They are: interdependence and globalisation;identity and cultural diversity; social justice and human rights; peace building and conflict resolution; and sustainable futures.
