New collection of free online teaching resources
Trade Aid is excited to present a new collection of free online innovative and inspiring teaching resources. The resource supports teachers and students to explore the economic world, and trade in particular. It takes a concept and issues-based approach, using critical thinking and actions to consider people’s participation in trade relationships, and the challenges of economic disparity.

Request an educator
Our curriculum resources are the main tool for teaching about Trade Justice. Once you and your students have gained foundational knowledge through our resources, we’d love to tell your students more about Trade Aid in person.
Having a Trade Aid educator come to your school, can be a great complement to teaching fair trade in the classroom. Our educators can answer students’ questions about fair trade and also bring Trade Aid products to illustrate the work of our producers.
Fill out a request form to see if a educator is available for a presentation at your school.
Trade Aid shop visits
A visit to your local Trade Aid shop is an exciting way to open students’ eyes to the world of fair trade. Because our shops vary in size, not all shops can accommodate large groups. Shop visits are available at the manager’s discretion and visits during school hours will need to work in with our busy retail environment. If this is something you’re interested in, please contact your local shop directly to make arrangements
Trade Aid has topical publications which highlight how we work as a social enterprise and key issues in global justice. Read or download these publications here.
Trade Aid’s own YouTube channel is regularly updated with interviews about trade justice issues as well as great footage of the talented producers we work with. These clips can be valuable inclusions in classroom teaching or for students to explore independently.
