The British Council on Sunday conferred International School Awards to 35 schools of the country for their outstanding works in international education last year.
Education minister Nurul Islam Nahid attended the ceremony as chief guest while 23 district education officers, 67 upazila secondary education
officers and teachers of the winning schools were present, said a press
release.
According to British Council official Sahelee Jamila Naz, around 3,000 primary and secondary schools had registered for the council’s benchmarking scheme, which accredits schools as
having an outstanding level of support for nurturing global citizenship in young people and enriching teaching and
learning.
Teachers from those schools had been trained on professional and online courses, she said.
A school has to complete at least seven collaborative activities to get full ISA accreditation, of which three must be done with international schools, she
added.
Rangpur district education officer Ruksana Begum said that the ISA was very effective and
helpful for ensuring a sustainable teaching lear-
ning.
Bogra Zilla School ambassador and international school coordinator Shafiqul Alam
Bulbul said, ‘It was an amazing experience doing ISA as we formed partnership with international schools in Scotland, India, Nepal and Sri Lanka and developed different learning projects.’
