Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning is an exciting new programme that supports teachers and pupils to collaborate with each other locally and globally.
It supports teachers and pupils to enhance the confidence, skills, knowledge, values and attitudes they need to thrive in an increasingly interconnected world – and create positive change as part of a whole-setting approach to Learning for Sustainability.
There are a host of learning opportunities and support on offer through the Connecting Classrooms programme. Whether you are part of a cluster of schools, an individual school – or interested in personal development opportunities – you can tailor your journey to suit your needs and priorities; thanks to the programme’s flexible range of elements.
