Our work with schools aims to increase the international outlook of young people and attainment levels through policy and curriculum reform, professional development, accreditation, and international links for schools.
The strands of our school programme are:
Enabling schools, teachers and young people to benefit from a programme which offers opportunities for schools to work together on teaching global citizenship, sharing education practice and building equitable and sustainable partnerships.
Providing continuous professional development opportunities to teachers through a suite of face-to-face workshops, courses and online resources for developing an understanding of global citizenship and for enhancing education.
Strengthening the understanding and skills of the headteachers and other school leaders for integrating international dimension and global citizenship in the curriculum.
Building engaging relationships with policymakers and policy influencers through study visits, policy dialogues and bespoke bilateral or international conferences.
The British Council offers the International School Award (ISA) as an accreditation framework for schools to record and evaluate their international work and embed it into the curriculum and whole school ethos.
When Chettinad Vidya Mandir began its partnership with Springfield Primary school, little did the teachers, students and parents know of the intensity of the learning experience that would gain momentum.
French lessons from a teacher in the UK for students of a school in India. In today’s digital world it’s not an unusual scenario. For the students of Kadvibai Virani Girls’ School, a government-run school in Rajkot town in Gujarat in West India, however, it is a new experience. And it is a result of being involved in the British Council International School Award (ISA).
