Establishing International Links
True Education Partnerships (TEP) has partnered with the Global School Alliance (GSA) to facilitate an inclusive, immersive online partnership programme to transform global learning in your school.
The Virtual School Partnerships programme is perfect for schools looking to establish a project-based partnership through online collaborations and exchanges devised around common academic subjects and cross-cultural understanding.
Two schools are matched based on their school profile, vision and aims to enrich and improve cultural awareness. Schools can identify a key link they would like to establish to support curriculum subjects including Modern Foreign Languages.
Using our decade of knowledge and experience in setting up successful school partnerships, we can expertly match your school with a partner school in a foreign country. We have connections with schools in 120 countries, but if we have not yet established a connection, we will establish links with counterparts in your preferred location.
All online sessions are led by our native Chinese specialists who will deliver live demonstrations.

How does it work?
- Once you have joined the programme, you will be invited to complete your school profile and state your preferred location to partner with.
- We will source a potential partner and arrange introductions if the match is successful.
- Once the partnership has been established, you will be set up with a dedicated space on the Global School Alliance platform to communicate and plan projects (including Zoom integration).
- Your Account Manager will support you to plan and set up the initial project.
- From then onwards, TEP & GSA will provide classroom resources to develop core skills and explore important global themes. This includes a 12-month support package with a designated contact for technical problems/support.
