Local authorities and other organisations play a central role in developing young people as future citizens. SIPs and other consultants support schools to achieve better development and performance. To find out more about the work going on in your area you can contact key people through our Regional Network for International Learning (RNIL). The Department for Children Schools and Families is calling for a ‘change of mindset: thinking globally in all that we do nationally and locally’. It identifies three inter-related key goals:

  • Equipping children and adults for a global society and economy
  • Working with other nations and regions to their benefit and ours
  • Maintaining an education system that can further our global economic objectives.
