Commonwealth Class


Inspire your pupils with free online resources from Commonwealth Class


Commonwealth Class is a special initiative from the BBC, British Council and Commonwealth Secretariat. The initiative offers free access to teaching resources, classroom activities, online debates and competitions to mark the run-up to the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.


It aims to energise young people’s learning by bringing together schools and children from across the Commonwealth to learn how to make the most of their place in the Commonwealth and wider world. It celebrates the values of the Commonwealth and connects its schools and young people to learn together about how to be active, responsible global citizens. 


Get involved in Commonwealth Class


The Commonwealth Class education pack for teachers is a dynamic, engaging resource that introduces pupils to Commonwealth values like rights and responsibilities, protecting the environment, healthy living, poverty alleviation and respect for other people.


Commonwealth Class partner, the BBC, will be hosting a series of monthly online debates on a series of topics. Commonwealth class has produced teaching resources which is based on the theme explored in each online debate.
