Our international work is led by Ian Kell who works for the North East Learning Trust.
As well as racking up lots of air miles, Mr Kell has presented training to teachers from four countries in Athens and 29 countries in Warsaw. He has also led training sessions on internationalism at British Council conferences and through NELT, he has supported international project start-ups in County Durham, Tyne and Wear and Northumberland.
Recently a group of Year 9 students went to Albacete (Spain) for a fully funded weeklong project on designing a sustainable town. Our students worked in collaboration with teenagers from all over Europe allowing them to develop their interpersonal skills, confidence, communication skills and most importantly it allowed them to make new European friends!
