Innovative Welsh Baccalaureate project helps raise awareness of Global Citizenship

26/02/2016

Over 1,000 students from The College Merthyr Tydfil have been involved in an innovative Global Citizenship project as part of their Welsh Baccalaureate studies.

The project, which forms part of the ‘Contributing to Community and Wider World Global Awareness and Enterprise’ element of the Welsh Baccalaureate, has involved the students working with a wide range of local and national organisations to learn and gain awareness about a range of local and global related themes. These organisations include South Wales Fire and Rescue Service, Merthyr Tydfil Leisure Centre, Tesco, Sepsis UK, the University of South Wales and many more.

The students, studying across levels one, two and three of the Welsh Baccalaureate, have had the opportunity to listen to lectures and take part in a range of interactive sessions with these organisations and gain an insight to key issues such as ethical sourcing, human rights, food and shelter in the human world, gender equality, waste management, just in time logistics, dementia and health, criminal justice and much more!  

The project will now culminate in a week long conference to be hosted at The College Merthyr Tydfil from Monday 18th April, where students themselves will present on some of the key issues they have learnt about over the last month.
