BRIDGE programme: Building Regional Intercultural Dialogue and Growing Engagement programme
Australia’s BRIDGE Programme was in news in August 2015. The programme that is run by Australian Schools in collaboration with Indian Schools came in news on 24 August 2015 after Australia agreed to include Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas (JNVs).
The agreement was reached during the 3rd Australia-India Education Council (AIEC) meeting held in New Delhi chaired by the Education Minister of both the countries.
The Australia-India BRIDGE school partnerships project, which is currently confined to private schools, will connect Australian and Indian schools and focus on building teacher capability across key learning areas, including science, technology, engineering and mathematics, information and communication technologies, intercultural understanding, values and inclusive education.
