What support is available?

There are incredible opportunities created when schools prioritise global learning and engagement. By looking beyond their school, and participating in global education programs, teachers and students can embrace rich and diverse cultures and develop as global citizens. 

There are many ways in which schools can assist their students to develop as global citizens, such as participating in the Department’s world class, student mobility programs, sharing language classes with an overseas school through a strong sister school partnership or giving their students the opportunity to learn alongside international students. 

The Department has developed a suite of highly engaging programs and resources to assist schools deliver student outcomes through global learning and engagement. Read on for further details.

Getting started - Internationalising Schooling Guide

The Department has developed the Internationalising Schooling Guide to assist principals and teachers to implement and embed high-quality global learning and engagement across their school. The guide outlines five broad priority areas of practice: 

  • whole-school approach to global learning and engagement
  • curriculum, assessment and instruction
  • sister schools and overseas learning experiences
  • community partnerships
  • integrating international students. 

The guide supports schools to implement global learning and engagement programs in a practical way through: examples of successful learning and teaching practices used by schools, indicators of quality practice tools and resources that assist best practice teacher recommended resources. 

Benefits: A whole-school approach to global learning and engagement ensures that schools develop young people who can make their way in a globalised world. 

The guide is currently being updated. For a copy of the existing guide, email us at: international@education.vic.gov.au
