Training Day: 'Starting your International School Partnership Journey'

Tuesday 14th January 2020 9:30am-4pm

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.

Sub-cover for this training day is available for teachers leading a cluster of schools in making a grant application (with at least 2 schools per cluster each with an international partner) and for teachers making an individual school application. Sub-cover of £150 is available to one teacher only per grant application. and will be paid after the grant application has been submitted by the January, March or June 2020 deadlines.
