This rapid review provides an overview of the UK development education landscape with a focus on what else apart from the British Council’s Connecting Classrooms Programme is going on to build partnerships between schools in the UK and schools overseas? How many children/schools are part of something like this?
These questions are related to a second query covered in a separate helpdesk report that examines childhood development stages; specifically, when is the best time to influence children’s and young people’s thinking on global issues?
These helpdesk reports are designed to help inform a business case and guide the Department for International Development’s thinking for a new approach to delivering development education in the UK when the current phases of Connecting Classrooms and the Global Learning Programme (GLP) ends.
K4D helpdesk reports provide summaries of current research, evidence and lessons learned. This report was commissioned by DFID.
