Drawing on leading music education expertise from the UK, World Voice aims to develop the wider learning outcomes, cultural awareness and musicality of school-aged children. Highly-skilled British trainers pass on their skills to teachers and pupils to offer a unique and lively range of techniques to use song as a tool for learning. Teachers gain skills to enrich their teaching practice with songs which help them to achieve their broader curriculum goals. At the same time, the British Council engages with key stakeholders in each country to promote the recognition and practice of singing as a core part of every child's education.
Now in its third year, World Voice is a vibrant, growing movement. The programme is currently delivered in seventeen countries across the globe, including India, Nepal, Hong Kong, Senegal, Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan, Rwanda, Zimbabwe, Jordan, Palestine, Lebanon, Chile, Argentina, Colombia, Brazil, and all four UK nations.
