About this Event

Equitable and Sustainable International School Partnerships is a free 3-part course designed for GTCS registered teachers in Scotland.

Please note this online learning runs across the following dates:

THURSDAY 24 September 2020: 6pm - 7.30pm

THURSDAY 1 October 2020: 6pm - 7.30pm

THURSDAY 8 October 2020: 6pm - 7.30pm

This British Council funded course will support teachers who are interested in finding out more about school partnerships AND those with an existing school partnership to:

  • use different global citizenship tools to measure the nature of their partnership and explore the impact of power, equity, strengths and challenges
  • develop a shared vision for the future and to create an action plan to develop their partnership further.

A school partnership should look like an equitable relationship between two or more learning environments where decisions are shared and knowledge is exchanged. That knowledge is then embedded across all schools involved.

You will learn how to:

  • Evaluate what your partnership currently looks like
  • Create a five year vision
  • Establish effective and fair partnership agreements
  • Plan an effective school visit
  • Understand how power impacts on your partnership
  • Maintain a long term partnership

Teachers will leave with the confidence to take forward the learning and apply to their own school partnership.

Links to Curriculum for Excellence will be made explicit, as will the national and international contexts which support young people to critically engage in real-world issues.

Currently the network of all five Scottish Development Education Centres (DECs) is working together to deliver professional learning online to teachers across Scotland while face-to-face sessions are not possible. Each course will be led by one of the regional DECs: Scotdec, WOSDEC, One World Centre, Aberdeen for a Fairer World/Montgomery DEC and Highland One World.

All 32 local authority areas in Scotland are covered by a DEC – for full details, including locations and how to contact your local DEC, please visit
