About the Scotland Malawi Partnership:
The Scotland Malawi Partnership is the national network supporting and inspiring links which benefit both Scotland and Malawi. This is a bilateral relationship of mutual respect and mutual understanding; it is composed of thousands of people-to-people and community-to-community links in which both nations contribute and both benefit. We are proud that for more than 150 years the schools of Scotland have been actively involved in this partnership. Please visit www.scotland-malawipartnership.org for more information.
Alternatively you can get in touch with our Youth and Schools Office, Emily Mnyayi, who is able to tailor our support to suit each individual school no matter what stage they are at and whether they have a School Partnership or not. Membership for schools is absolutely free. More than 160 of the Scotland Malawi Partnership’s 650+ members are Scottish primary and secondary schools. To date, the SMP has supported these links by:
1. Offering advice about how to set up a school partnership. For example, through our Guide to School Partnerships.
2. Disseminating information through weekly bulletins, regular email updates and quarterly schools newsletter.
3. Promoting best practice. For example, through the Education and International Development: an exploration of good practice national conference in April 2012.
4. Supporting networking and information sharing through 20 to 30 events, conferences, forums, training opportunities & stakeholder meetings a year, including a dedicated Schools Forum meeting quarterly to discuss key issues relevant to education, exploring best practice and areas of joint working.
5. Raising awareness of existing school partnerships in order to support the sharing of experience and reduce the duplication of effort.
6. Signposting schools to other organisations which offer practical and financial support for school linking.
7. Offering free resources, the opportunity to borrow resources and links to online resources that schools can use to support their Malawi links.
8. Having a dedicated youth and schools officer who can provide practical advice and support tailored to each individual school.
