Connecting Classrooms

Connecting Classrooms is a global education programme brought to you by the British Council in partnership with the Department for International Development (DFID).

As part of the programme there are a number of FREE teacher CPD Core Skills training packages, which aim to improve classroom practice and develop ideas with like-minded teachers. 

In Northern Ireland, Nerve Centre will be delivering four Core Skills training packages over the next three years, which seek to improve teaching practice in key areas of interest for the NI Curriculum: Communication and Collaboration, Creativity and Imagination, Citizenship and Digital Literacy. Each training package is completed over three sessions and combines workshops and school-based activities. Click on the banners below for further details on courses coming up over the coming months. To register your interest in one of our Core Skills training packages, or to request one in your area, or to find out more, contact

On successful completion of the Core Skills CPD programme, you can take your learning further by developing a professional partnership with an overseas school. For further information and application details visit the British Council Schools Online website.
