In light of the impact of Covid-19, updates are available on this page about changes to the Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning programme
About the programme
Connecting Classrooms is the British Council’s flagship global education programme for schools, delivered in partnership with the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office. The programme is designed to help young people develop the knowledge, skills and values to live and work in a globalised economy and contribute responsibly both locally and globally. Connecting Classrooms also supports teachers and school leaders to improve teaching, giving students the knowledge, skills and attitudes they need to make a positive contribution now and in the future.
The programme can offer support at school and policy level with school leadership, core and transferable skills and inclusive education. We have a range of approaches, including policy engagement and technical assistance.
In Jordan, Connecting Classrooms has already engaged over 10 policy and decision-makers, provided professional development training to almost 600 teachers and school leaders, and engaged over 157 schools, 9 of which have run successful international partnerships with schools in the UK.
The new phase of the programme 2018-2021, which was launched in September 2018, builds upon the success of the previous phase of Connecting Classrooms 2015-2018.
