About 21st Century Schools Programme

21st Century Schools is an ambitious 10 million pounds three-year education programme, designed and implemented by the British Council and funded by the UK Government. It will give over one million 10-15 years old students across the Western Balkans critical thinking, problem solving and coding skills.
Run in partnership with the relevant educational institutions in each country, it will allow students to learn in a fun, interactive and innovative way. As well as learning critical thinking and problem solving skills, children will learn practical coding skills and have the opportunity to practice their skills through physical computing. As part of the programme each school will receive a number of micro:bit devices which children can programme onto and use across subjects to solve every day problems.
