How to create a mutual, sustainable partnership in school linking

Who is this for?

Key Stages 2 and 3 teachers in England.

How will I benefit?

Are you thinking about setting up a partnership with a school overseas? This course will help you explore key principles for setting up and sustaining a mutually beneficial international school partnership, drawing on our Catholic development charity experience of challenges and methodologies required in working with communities to ensure that partnership is truly equitable.

We will cover how a partnership can reflect your school’s ethos and values and help embed global learning throughout the school. This course will also provide opportunities to identify means of deepening participation as active global citizens in order to move from a charity to a justice mentality.
