We all know the importance of keeping connected whilst distancing, and this is more important than ever now that young people face a very different Autumn term at school.

Our Schools team have designed a wide range of resources to support young people, teachers, schools and parents to stay connected in challenging times. From connecting to life and culture in different countries around the world, learning about social issues that matter most to young people today and supporting their mental health and wellbeing, there's something for every classroom. 

There's lots going on this Autumn - from Black History Month and the New Education Exchange webinar in October, to International Education Week in November: choose from our expertly curated collection of resources below.

Here are some highlights:

Mark Black History Month in the classroom with our Rising Against Racism resource. Discover the history of the Soweto events in South Africa with this case study of youth-led campaigning from our Radical Read resource.

As schools around the world reopen after lockdown, during which time, families have been through extraordinary experiences together, how are teachers engaging with parents and carers? Join our panel of global experts as they discuss how schools are interacting with parents as they reopen. 

Every November we come together to recognise the value of bringing the world into the classroom and celebrate international work in schools. For the first time ever, we are offering a week of fantastic events that you can access wherever you are in the world. The line-up is packed with online webinars, ideas and activities to keep us connected  and enable young people to take action on the global issues that matter to them today. A host of experts from around the world will be sharing their experiences, schools will be taking our Climate Change Challenge and there’s a raft of classroom ideas with our free classroom resources.
