Welcome to CDEC - Developing Global Learning







We are sad to announce that CDEC is closing its resource centre doors on Friday 21st July 2017.

Thank you to all the schools that have supported CDEC, whether you have attended our CPD courses, been a member or part of a project, or just needed advice and support.  You have all helped in making the last 20 years possible.

Not quite sure where the 20 years has gone and in September we will be having a celebration of our 20th anniversary - it was the 19th September 1997 that MP Martin Bell opened the centre in Chester.

After September 2017, Heather Swainston will continue Global Learning and P4C work in Cheshire, Halton, Warrington and Wirral schools as a consultant.  The website and the name CDEC will continue.  She will be available on the following number 07740 470190.  Please use the same email address and the website remains as

We will be working with Ignite, so please click on the link below for courses you can use your e-credits on.

CDEC is the leading provider of global education services in Cheshire, Halton, Warrington and Wirral, offering professional support and training to schools and teachers, universities and trainee teachers and other educational and early years’ settings.

Global learning helps to develop skills of enquiry and critical thinking, and the ability to engage with different perspectives. Global learning helps to promote an understanding of and respect for the lives and cultures of everyone, in order for us all to contribute and actively participate in the development of a fair, sustainable society that celebrates diversity and difference and our global interdependence.

We offer a range of creative CPD opportunities for teachers, including introductory courses, curriculum projects and bespoke training and support for schools.

CDEC – Developing Global Learning offers a variety of programmes that can support your school in meeting the requirements of the curriculum, and the global dimension. Our one day professional development courses are designed to support particular areas of the curriculum or whole school policy and practice and provide inspirational ideas and creative approaches to teaching.
