What is a template project?

Template projects give you a framework to run a collaborative, pupil-focused programme of work related to the core skills.


There are seven templates, each of which is linked to at least two core skills. Based around the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, they address topics which are high on the agenda of governments around the world in the 21st century.


Each template can be adapted to meet the needs of your country, your classroom and your curriculum.
