International Education Week 16-20 November
The theme of IEW this year is "my international journey" and how
to get you and your pupils started on that international journey.
There is a homework challenge for pupils, a passport to fill in and
send to your partner schools etc., and a link to a new project we
are involved with that encourages secondary teachers to share vlogs
made by students on their year abroad to inspire younger pupils to
start on their own international journey.
Please use and share !
China pack 2016 Year of the Monkey

FiveFilms4freedom - The world's first global, digital LGBT film festival
Last year the British Council was involved with an initiative
called Five Films for freedom
We developed a resource pack
for students using a couple of the films from the festival
In advance of the festival next year we would like to make a film in a UK secondary school showing some young people watching the films and talking about some of the issues they raise. We would then plan to use this as part of our resource for schools around the film festival - as the festival films are only available for a limited time online. If you think your school and pupils might be interested, please get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would hope to make the film this term.
