Join us on 13 January to learn about taking a trip to Sierra Leone in 2021
21 December, 2020
On 13 January at 3.30pm, we'll be hosting a live seminar to talk about how teachers can take the 'Global Learning Trip of a Lifetime' to Sierra Leone during 2021.
You'll get to hear from the British Council's Connecting Classrooms programme Director Kelly, who is based in Sierra Leone, and originally from Bangor, Co. Down. You'll also get to hear more about the Connecting Classrooms initiative and learn practical aspects of the programme, like:
How do I apply for funding?
Who will I travel with?
What happens when I'm there?
What support will I receive?
Who will cover for me when I'm away?
Sierra Leone has one of the lowest Covid-19 rates in the world with just 76 deaths from 28 April 2020 to 6 January 2021*. Because of Ebola learnings and proven containment methods from mandatory temperature checks to closing off entry and exit points, it's one of the most well-equipped countries to cope with a pandemic outbreak. It has past-pandemic and global education learning practices that we can bring back and implement in our NI classrooms, as well as huge cultural learnings.
REGISTER for more information, so you can consider taking the global learning trip of a lifetime. But places are limited, so please don't delay.
And as we're in the final year of the programme, 2021 really is your last chance to take part (unless funding is extended beyond 31/12/2021).
