World is a Village - connecting teenagers with the world

We have partnered with World is a Village to help schools build new connections between students in the UK and in Europe. We believe developing these connections enables them to gain essential communication skills and self-confidence that help successfully transition from education into employment. Through this digital program, teens connect once a week to speak and practice their verbal skills, and to exchange experiences on various topics.

As an educator, you can participate in the program in two ways: 

  • Enroll your entire class, and get a weekly follow-up on your students progress
  • You can also refer individual students to the programme, and they can sign up for free - simply share this page with them, so they can follow the instructions and register on their own
