In today’s world, 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, Connecting Classrooms, is specifically designed to establish long-term partnerships between schools in the UK and more than 60 other countries worldwide, helping to create culturally inclusive classrooms.
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, the programme develops understanding and trust between young people in different societies, creating a safer and more connected world for the future.
The programme is managed by the British Council and jointly funded with the UK’s Department for International Development (UKAid).
