Abstract

This report presents the overseas findings from the impact evaluation of the Connecting Classrooms programme, the British Council's international education programme. The programme aims to build the capacity of teachers and school leaders to integrate a range of core skills (critical thinking and problem-solving, collaboration and communication, creativity and imagination, digital literacy, global citizenship and student leadership) into the curriculum. This report was part of a broader 20-month evaluation carried out between 2016-2018 that also included the UK. The evaluation was commissioned by The British Council principal office in London and conducted through a partnership between the research consultancy Ecorys and the Robert Owen Centre at the University of Glasgow. Findings in this overseas report are based on fieldwork in Nigeria, Lebanon, Bangladesh and Ethiopia. The first round of fieldwork took place in 2017 and comprised a counterfactual analysis of five Connecting Classrooms (CC) schools and five comparison schools per country. The second round of fieldwork occurred in the first quarter of 2018. These follow-up visits took place at CC schools only, and focused on assessing retention of knowledge, how much further core skills had become embedded in the curriculum, and the sustainability of changes in teaching practices. An additional element of the follow-up visits was the impact of the programme on policy and education stakeholders.
