Young people growing up in Scotland today can look forward to spending their working lives as citizens of an increasingly complex world. International education will become fundamental to their realising their potential in such a multicultural and global society.
International education is a broad concept, and it can be exemplified in a variety of forms and experiences. These include school-based experiences, often using ICT, in addition to school links, exchanges and overseas visits. Learning in and through international education can make learning about any subject or any cross-curricular theme more relevant and fun.
