How Thinking Global Can Improve Your School: A report from British Council

Over recent years there have been a large number of studies conducted into the impact of international education work in UK schools. This booklet, published by British Council, uses that research to show exactly how these programmes have been proven to improve literacy and learning, help teachers’ professional development and meet inspection requirements.

They have included highlights from 26 research studies from around the UK, 22 of which are from the last five years, focusing on schools, teachers, learners and the community.

Some of the research has been undertaken by British Council but it also uses extensive references from independent bodies such as the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER) and the University of London’s Institute of Education. The full list of studies can be found on page 18, with sources referenced throughout.
