    Collaborative curriculum projects

    ISABack

    Educators are able to benchmark themselves against

    world class standards to ensure the best possible

    outcomes for their young people.

    Collaborative curriculum projects are embedded in the

    curriculum and carried out in collaboration with a number of

    different schools.

    They give students access to another culture and language

    and direct experience of working with those in other

    countries.

    Projects can involve a range of subject disciplines

    and can support the British Councils work in other

    areas, such as English, climate change and the arts.
