BRIDGE School partnerships

Building Relationships through Intercultural Dialogue and Growing Engagement (BRIDGE)

The Australia–Asia BRIDGE School Partnerships Project connects Australian teachers, students and school communities with their counterparts across Asia. 

BRIDGE is a teacher professional learning program that builds teachers' Asia capability through school partnerships to:

  • develop intercultural understanding
  • improve Asian language skills (if applicable)
  • enhance information communication technology (ICT) skills
  • establish sustainable school partnerships and a community of learners.

Core phases of BRIDGE

  • AEF partners with education jurisdictions across the region to identify and partner schools and teachers.

  • Online and face-to-face professional learning comprises webinars, reciprocal in-country workshops (in Australia and Asia), school visits and homestays.

  • Ongoing support to school partnerships is provided through access to AEF, BRIDGE community of practice and curriculum resources to support classroom collaboration.
