Our Work Is Driven By Four Key Questions
Who am I?
Who are we?
Where do we live?
How can we all live well together?
The Linking Network is here to support your school explore these questions with your students.
What Is "Linking"?
At the heart of our work is the unique process of ‘linking’ which we’ve developed over the past 2 decades.
Linking describes the act of sharing of time and experiences with people from different backgrounds. This might be different social, ethnic, faith, geographical or ages. Linking is not a complex idea – but it is hard to get it right.
Therefore we offer teachers and school leaders training and high-quality resources that can be used to support explorations of identity and belonging in ways that are embedded in the curriculum.
