INITIATIVE

Details and eligibility

This award will recognise a school initiative that demonstrates how international education and the school ethos have had a positive impact within the locality and/or on a global scale. Evidence should include a clear statement of how your initiative has gone beyond what the school would be doing as an effective international school. This could be an international initiative relevant to COVID-19 or otherwise, but must be achieving international impact in a way that goes beyond supporting the school community through a global pandemic.

Your application must focus on how and why one initiative is impacting your school including:​

  • How and why the initiative has made a difference beyond the context of the school itself in a way that shares an international dimension that gives students a deeper understanding of what it means to live and serve in an internationally-minded way

  • How and why the initiative has had impact on the international context of your school, either locally or on a global scale, through evidence that has been collected to track the impact of the initiative 

  • How and why the initiative includes the student voice and/or student action as part of the initiative

  • How and why the initiative has addressed a challenge or opportunity in a way that has directly impacted the school and demonstrates the potential for longer-term development as a sustainable initiative for the school

  • How and why the initiative includes strategies that enable it to be shared beyond the wider school community e.g. with other international schools and/or could be used to help bring about best practice in their local educational communities (evidence of this could include visibility of the initiative on a public website, public access YouTube videos, community engagement, conference or workshop presentation, publication in publicly accessible media
