Training for Cluster Leads: Making a Successful International Partnership Grant Application

4th April or 5th June 2019

Nothing brings global learning to life or makes the classroom a more engaging and inspiring place for young people like the opportunity to learn, interact and collaborate with peers in other countries.

International school partnerships inspire students to fully deepen their learning experiences through joint learning activities, exploring global and sustainable development themes with their international peers. Pupils’ global learning competencies, communication skills and an appreciation for cultural diversity, will be reinforced through collaboration and can inspire them to put learning into action by making a difference in their community and the wider world. They also offer teachers the chance to share experiences and learn new practices from colleagues in other countries.

To book onto this course, there must be a minimum of two schools from Northern Ireland, each with an international partner school (or awaiting a match from the British Council partnerships team). Each local school must have completed a CCGL school self-evaluation and be committed to submitting a grant application by the 17th June 2019 (April training) or 7th October 2019 (June training). Sub-cover is available for attending this course if there are 3 or more local schools in your cluster. The training will take place in the Play Resource Centre, North City Business Centre 2 Duncairn Gardens, Belfast BT15 2GG
