What are International Professional Learning Communities?
International Professional Learning Communities (IPLC) are funded by the Welsh Government and delivered by the British Council in Wales. They align with Welsh Government education priorities, and offer teaching professionals from schools and colleges in Wales the chance to collaborate with schools, organisations and networks in other countries.
Through International Professional Learning Communities, teachers from Wales have the opportunity to visit a country overseas to learn from international colleagues by observing lesson delivery, teaching methodologies and content approach and standards in pupil learning.
Learning exchanges in the past include digital competence in Hong Kong, school leadership in Malaysia, numeracy in India, literacy in Canada, arts in special educational needs in Los Angeles and reducing the impact of poverty on attainment in New York.
There will be upcoming IPLC visits in 2020, more information will be available soon.
