The BBC, the British Council and the Commonwealth Secretariat have joined forces to bring Commonwealth Class to schools. Collaboration between the three organisations will enable more than 100,000 schools, 300,000 teachers and 17 million young people across the Commonwealth to access themed learning resources take part in online debates and forums, and work on collaborative projects in cross-Commonwealth teams.
Commonwealth Class aims to bring energy to young people’s learning by connecting schools and children from across the Commonwealth to learn together about how to be active, responsible global citizens as part of the Commonwealth family.
The British Council has produced an education pack for the launch. Commonwealth Class: Get Involved is an exciting new resource for teachers containing cross-curricular activities, short films and discussion guides with learning outcomes that link to key skills, curriculum subjects and Commonwealth values. You can find this on the Schools Online Commonwealth Class page.
Commonwealth Class partner, the BBC, is hosting a series of monthly debates and any registered Commonwealth Class school can take part. To take part please visit the BBC website
