Developing Global Citizens
TEAMGlobal (The European Atlantic Movement) is an independent, non-party-political educational foundation. Founded over 60 years ago, TEAM’s vision is to promote an understanding and discussion of world affairs, which empowers young people to be active global citizens and to aspire to leadership roles within their communities.
What do we do?
Sixth Form Conferences
We arrange Sixth Form conferences at schools, colleges and universities. These conferences focus on global issues affecting young people.
TEAM organises study tours for teachers, lecturers and students to places of international importance. Last year, we ran study tours to Geneva and Brussels.
CPD for teachers
We arrange CPD events for teachers on European and global affairs. The content relates closely to the syllabus requirements for years 12 and 13 students (6th Form) in Politics, Geography, Economics and related studies.
TEAM aims to enable young people to act as global citizens.
We empower them to consider world issues and to take their part in resolving problems and promoting solutions.
How do we do this?
Sixth Form Conferences
We organise workshop conferences in schools and universities. We provide outstanding speakers giving students the opportunity to widen their knowledge, to debate and consider issues in small groups and then present their ideas back to the speakers. The process is not unlike a university taster day and frequently students’ aspirations are enhanced and decisions about their career and possible academic courses are reviewed . New possibilities are considered and often self-confidence is enhanced.
In addition to conferences, TEAM creates study tours to cities which host international institutions. These tours are designed for teachers, undergraduate and postgraduate students, lecturers, professionals and others who would benefit from it. These tours visit the institutions of international cooperation and governance and provide opportunities to meet and discuss issues with those who work for them.
We arrange CPD (Continuing Professional Development) events for teachers on European and global affairs. The content relates closely to the syllabus requirements for years 12 and 13 students (6th Form) in Politics, Geography, Economics and related studies.
Why do we do it?
We believe that young people need to come to a critical understanding of the issues of our time. Through a combination of study tours and sixth form conferences and CPD event for teachers, TEAM aims to increase political literacy and help develop global citizenship.
TEAM is a non-political, independent Educational Foundation.
