We work with many different schools and partners who share our mission to help support millions of children worldwide.
At Jigsaw Education Group we are proud of our work with schools, teachers, partners and above all children. Changing guidance and statutory requirements, lack of time for teachers and, of course, the pandemic, has meant that implementing the most effective PSHE/health and wellbeing and RE programmes is challenging but never more important. We make it our business to provide ongoing support and training for teachers, enabling them to offer their students the highest quality learning experiences.
Jigsaw and the British Council
Jigsaw Education Group is proud to work in partnership with schools around the world. As part of the British Council’s ongoing Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning programme, we have three clusters of schools working on projects which partner schools in the UK with colleagues in Nepal, Lebanon and Egypt.
As well as providing some excellent free resources on Global Citizenship, Connecting Classrooms partners UK schools with settings abroad, allowing students and teachers to work together on different global issues, sharing experiences and ideas. The projects can be started at any time and schools are actively encouraged to find a partner school to share their good practice.
The COVID-19 pandemic has given an unexpected commonality to the projects and led to Jigsaw being consulted on the writing of the British Council’s Global Learning resource, “Mental Health and Well-being”, a set of activities for young people aged 7-14 years. These resources are available for free on the British Council’s Connecting Classrooms website.
Jigsaw and NCFE
Jigsaw is delighted to work with NCFE to offer the opportunity to both students and schools to gain recognition for their RSHE/PSHE work.
The full assessment process in Jigsaw with attainment descriptors for each unit of work and a summative assessment ‘workbook’ in lesson 6 of each Puzzle (unit) enable the straightforward monitoring and recording of learning and progress and the workbooks evidence all the Learning Outcomes and Portfolio Requirements for the NCFE RSHE Awards.
Jigsaw, the mindful approach to PSHE, 11-16, is endorsed by the NCFE (Northern Council for Further Education) as the teaching programme aligned to and supporting the delivery of learning that meets all the requirements for the Levels 1 and 2 Awards for RSHE (Relationships, Sex and Health Education).
See ncfe.org.uk for more information about the awards.
