The Cam Academy Trust
International Education – British Council International School Award
All schools within The Cam Academy Trust hold the British Council International School Award, which is a bench marking scheme that recognises and celebrates exemplary practices of internationalism in schools. In particular, schools must show an outstanding level of support for:
- nurturing global citizenship in young people
- enriching teaching and learning
ISA provides a framework for schools to develop an action plan and implement international activities throughout the year, and encourages schools to collaborate with overseas schools to create a rich learning experience for students through use of ICT, creative pedagogical practices and real context for learning.
The award reflects the strong emphasis within CAT for providing the highest quality languages curriculum, for embedding global themes across subjects within the curriculum, and for developing and sustaining a rich array of international extra-curricular opportunities for all students.
