Abstract

The aim of this study was to explore the possible impact of global learning interventions on students’ mental health and wellbeing. The study employed a mixed methods design, which consisted of student (N11) and teacher (N4) interviews, as well as a mental health and wellbeing questionnaire. The participants of this study all attended an autistic specific secondary school that served as a Global Learning Programme Expert Centre. The findings of the study indicated that students who participated in lessons that had a global learning focus, experienced a small but significant improvement in mental health and wellbeing. This small-scale study may lead to more extensive research in the area.
