Abstract

The Curriculum Guidance document “Developing a Global Dimension in the School Curriculum” (DGDSC), developed by the former Central Bureau of the British Council and the Development Education Association (DEA), and published by the Department for Education and Skills (DfES) in 2000 was the main reference document for schools in relation to teaching the “Global Dimension” (GD) of the curriculum in England from 2000 to 2004. The document was integrated to the National Curriculum and recommended to schools by DfES. DGDSC’s text was updated by the DEA and reprinted in March 2005 with minor changes in structure. However, only the version of 2000 is analyzed in this chapter.
