This week Nigel Adams, MP for Selby and Ainsty, is urging all local schools within the area to get involved in the International School Award (ISA), a globally recognised accreditation for schools’ international work.
A part of the British Council’s work in education, the ISA has already worked with over 10,000 school in a variety of programmes designed to equip young people with the knowledge, skills and outlook they need to live, work and thrive in a community.
The award not only provides schools with the opportunity to gain recognition for their international work, but also enables teachers to become a part of an online community of international educators.
Once a part of the ISA community, schools receive free assistance from the British Council, as well as feedback from global education experts. Any school that is accredited with the ISA will be invited to an award ceremony to celebrate theirs alongside other schools’ commitment to international work in UK education.
Speaking on the awards Nigel said, “I urge as many schools in our area to get involved. This is a great opportunity for our local schools to showcase some of the fantastic internationally focussed projects they are involved with. Maximising the opportunities available to all our children is important to me, and this is a fantastic chance to encourage and promote the understanding of other culture and countries for students in Selby and Ainsty. I hope that this can be one of a variety of ways we can help prepare our young people to become engaged, aware and responsible citizens”.
