  • Working with International Partners

    CECD provides training and consultancy services for educational organisations on an international scale, with programmes hosted in the UK and in-country.

    We have the capacity to design extensive programmes of training for teachers, hosted in the UK, as well one-off training events either in the UK or in-country. The School of Education has developed over 600 well-established partnerships in education from the early years, primary, secondary and post-compulsory sectors on a national and international scale.

    Together we are a strong community of practitioners and researchers who aim to be agents of change, improving global educational practice for future generations.

    We work with our international partners to create flexible and bespoke training programmes, designed by experts and practitioners to suit global educational objectives.

    Recent Projects and Partnerships

    Ecolint - International School of Geneva We are very pleased to be working with Ecolint/The International school of Geneva to deliver a portfolio of professional learning programmes, including The Multilingual Learner: Theory into Practice, and a Principles of Practice.

    English Schools Foundation (ESF), Hong Kong Our collaboration with the ESF is centred on the flagship programme Principles of Practice. Principles of Practice provides teachers with an opportunity for depth-engagement with educational research in a way that makes research directly relevant to everyday classroom practice. The programme provides a space for dialogue about the 'big' questions that underpin professional life for teachers - about the practice of being a teacher, and the ethical and pedagogic principles that underpin this practice. Over the course of one year, participants engage in online lectures and small group tutorials, culminating in the development of a sustainable plan for research engagement far beyond the life of the programme. 

    Leadership Through Change (Khebrat) in partnership with the Ministry of Education of Saudi Arabia: Between 2016-2018 the School of Education at Oxford Brookes University (OBU) was contracted by the Ministry of Education of Saudi Arabia to provide a 12-month tailored programme of continuing professional development for qualified Saudi teachers visiting the UK (both primary and secondary). This was a flagship national programme aimed at advancing change in the Saudi education system, drawing on best practice from UK schools. The programme focused on the development of innovative, creative professional practice through school immersion in partner schools.

    Other recent international partners include Fu Yuan International School, Times College, and the Helga Todd Foundation.
