Virtual partnerships offer teachers and pupils a unique opportunity to work and learn with a school from another country and culture.

Virtual partnerships resources are designed around themes connected to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and include interactive challenges which schools can complete together, sharing thoughts and outcomes on social media.

Virtual partnerships resources are available online to all schools, and are of particular value to schools:

  • new to international collaboration that want to get started with some simple activities based around getting to know their partner
  • interested in collaborating with others on a smaller scale
  • who are not able to travel internationally to meet their partner.
