With the ever changing nature of the world as we know it, socially, economically and environmentally, it’s vital that young citizens know their place in the world. Teaching them about global issues is imperative. Our global education programme for Schools and Connecting Classrooms is specifically designed to help teachers do this.
Connecting Classrooms is run in partnership with the UK Government Department for International Development (DFID) and it helps young people learn about global issues, giving them skills to work in a global economy.
We aim to give all young people the opportunity to succeed in a globalised society. Connecting Classrooms enables students and their teachers to:
•understand issues of worldwide importance
•gain a sense of social responsibility
•develop skills to succeed in the global economy.
Through these partnerships (DFID and the British Council), the programme develops understanding and trust between young people in different societies, creating a safer and more connected world for the future.
