The British Council is the United Kingdom’s international organisation for educational opportunities and cultural relations. The British Council creates international opportunities for the people of the UK and other countries and builds trust between them worldwide.
VDJS is an accredited member of the British Council and is proud recipient of the International School Award (ISA) for five consecutive times.
Staff as well as students participate in a number of activities organized under British Council round the year. We solely identify and highlight international dimension within the existing curriculum.
Our active involvement with the ISA aims at exploring global ties to provide the students, varied opportunities in self-development through personal inquiry, in-depth research and development of team-spirit enabling them to acquire organizing abilities and express creatively their oratory skills and leadership qualities to make them an asset not only to the country but to the global community.
On this platform both the staff and the students get an opportunity to learn about young people from different cultures, religions, and ethnicity and gain insight and knowledge of various subjects by connecting with various schools across the world through class links, video conferencing, internet, and visits of foreign nationals in the classroom. This educational opportunity inculcates in the students respect for culture, religion and linguistic diversity and allows them to appreciate their role in the world community.
The British Council’s Connecting Classroom Online Professional Development Courses have facilitated the teachers to sharpen and re-skill their competencies to forge sustainable partnerships promoting inter-cultural appreciation and global awareness. It provides an international dimension in education through regular exposure of staff and students to the world at large and creates global career development opportunities for both faculty and students.
