A partnership with a school in Africa, Asia or South America can provide an exciting context for developing Global Citizenship learning and sharing of professional learning between countries. However, it can also be a challenge to set up and sustain a meaningful learning based partnership.

Young people are often simultaneously at the centre of things and on the periphery. They may be the focus of an initiative or an action whilst having little to do with the decision-making process itself.

Highland One World Centre has some exciting events coming up in 2018, with a chance for teachers to learn about a rights-based approach to teaching and learning; how to explore controversial issues in the classroom, and how to develop numeracy through global citizenship.

Save the date: Scotland Malawi Partnership's 2018 Schools Forum will take place next month. The network's Youth Congress will also be back for next year to celebrate the Year of Young People.
