Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning (CCGL) is an exciting new programme that supports teachers and pupils to collaborate with each other locally and globally. South Africa is one of the many countries that participate in the programme, so if you're interested in starting, or enhancing, a partnership with a school there, please join us to hear more about how we can support you with this.

More about the programme...

CCGL supports teachers and pupils to enhance the confidence, skills, knowledge, values and attitudes they need to thrive in an increasingly interconnected world – and create positive change as part of a whole-setting approach to Learning for Sustainability.

There are a host of learning opportunities and support on offer through the Connecting Classrooms programme. Whether you are an individual school, want to work with other schools as a 'cluster of interest' – or interested in personal development opportunities – you can tailor your journey to suit your needs and priorities; thanks to the programme’s flexible range of elements.

What does it offer?

Co-funded by the British Council and the Department for International Development (DfID), the programme offers:

  • Fully-funded professional learning: delivered in a way that suits you and your setting
  • Free support from local experts across Scotland
  • Free classroom resources to support pupil projects themed around the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
  • Generous funding to facilitate international visits by staff to partner schools in other countries, events and training: – up to £3,000 for ‘one-to-one’ partnerships and £35,000 for ‘cluster’ partnerships.
  • Automatic recognition leading to accreditation through the British Council International School Award.
