International Education Week takes place 18-22 November 2019, and we have a range of ways to help your school #BeInternational.
What is International Education Week?
The British Council celebrates International Education Week every year, promoting the benefits of international learning and cultural exchange to a huge community of teachers and school leaders in the UK and all over the world. We believe that international learning, global communication and language learning is more important now than ever.
International partnerships have changed the lives of pupils in thousands of schools. Pupils who have learnt new languages, developed their understanding of different cultures, and discovered more about the global issues that affect us all. How could a partnership change your school?
Whether you want to organise a Skype call with native language speakers, work on collaborative projects on a real-world issue like climate change or find out about funding for international trips for teachers and students, we can help.
