Linking programmes - Worldwide

Along with our partners, we offer a range of exciting opportunities for your school to engage with the rest of the world. Join our global community today.

Connecting Classrooms


Connecting Classrooms is a global education programme for schools.  It is designed to help young people learn about global issues and become responsible global citizens, as well as giving them the skills they need for work in a global economy.  It will offer school partnerships, professional development courses for educators, school accreditation and opportunities for policy-makers to share best practice with international counterparts.  


At the moment, we are looking for schools who want to take part through international school partnerships.

Language Assistants work in UK primary and secondary schools, including sixth form and further education colleges and are native-level speakers of French, Spanish, German, Italian, Mandarin Chinese, Russian and Irish. 


International School Award

Whichever programme you choose, the outcomes will take you ever closer to attaining full accreditation for the British Council International School Award.
