This year International Education Week will take place from 17 November and British Council Wales are organising workshops to help schools bring the world to their Welsh pupils.

The Internationalising Young People workshops will take place on 19 November in Carmarthen and on 27 November in Cardiff.

The workshops are free to attend and will give primary schools, secondary schools and further education colleges the opportunity to see how they can bring an international dimension into their classrooms through British Council projects.

The events will include talks from keynote speakers and workshops with teachers who have successfully included international work in their schools. They will share their experiences and offer practical advice on how teachers and pupils can make the most of the international opportunities on offer.

More details can be found on the British Council Wales website

About the British Council

The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for educational opportunities and cultural relations. We create international opportunities for the people of the UK and other countries and build trust between them worldwide.

We work in more than 100 countries and our 7000 staff – including 2000 teachers – work with thousands of professionals and policy makers and millions of young people every year by teaching English, sharing the Arts and delivering education and society programmes.

We are a UK charity governed by Royal Charter. A core publically-funded grant-in-aid provides less than 25 per cent of our turnover which last year was £781m. The rest of our revenues are earned from services which customers around the world pay for, through education and development contracts and from partnerships with public and private organisations. All our work is in pursuit of our charitable purpose and supports prosperity and security for the UK and globally.
