DFID Global School Partnerships are an exciting and effective way of providing learners with an understanding and knowledge of the world. Joint curricular work between partner schools and exchange visits widen perspectives and change attitudes and values. The programme aims to raise young people's awareness of global development issues and equip them with the skills and knowledge to become active global citizens.
