Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning (CCGL) 2018 - 2021 in Uganda will continue to support the aims and objectives of the Ministry of Education and Sports. Connecting Classrooms phase 4 follows a 10 year implementation of previous versions of the programme in Uganda. The updated version of the programme will provide flexible, tailored support to meet specific country priorities.
The new programme will further build on the gains so far by:
Enriching education and improving learner performance: We will support school systems for over 150 under resourced and hard to reach schools in Uganda through a range of fully funded training and professional development opportunities for over 3750 teachers and 300 school leaders. The training programme focuses on improving pedagogies and approaches around the key themes of core and transferable skills, school leadership and inclusive education, to enrich the learner experience and boost student performance.
Fruitful collaboration with schools in the UK: We will support 150 schools in Uganda to develop partnerships with schools in the UK, enabling teachers and leaders to support their professional development journeys by becoming part of an international community of practice. Teachers can also access our free classroom resources designed to support joint projects with partner schools, helping students develop their core skills by collaborating and interacting with their peers across the UK.
Policy Development Support: We will provide policy makers with access to leading UK education experts, who provide consultancy and advice on various aspects of school systems, including curriculum development and inclusive education policy, all drawing on the latest international practices and research.
Core and transferable skills
Preparing students for life and work by equipping them with the core and transferable skills, such as critical thinking, enterprise, citizenship and communication, in the classroom and teaching them how to apply these to thrive in today’s world.
Enhancing school leadership by building the skills of school leaders, supporting policy makers to develop and implement effective national school leadership approaches and facilitating collaboration between your school leaders and school leaders in the UK to support and embed change.
Making the learning environment more inclusive by equipping teachers with the skills and approaches to implement inclusive practises in the classroom and meet the needs of every learner.
