Poverty Explored: A four-week course for Transition Year students
Poverty Explored is a new four-week transition year teaching resource to help get your students exploring, debating, challenging and taking part in issues around global poverty.
Through role-plays, videos, case studies and discussions, your students will learn, engage and respond to international issues such as poverty, emergencies, human rights, gender, tax and climate change.

- Lesson 1 – The roots of poverty: finding the problem.
- Lesson 2 – A taxing issue: a look into the murky world of tax.
- Lesson 3 – Climate countdown: the need to take action for our climate.
- Lesson 4 – Partnership for change: working together to end poverty.
