The Wisdom Trust

The League Of Wisdom

The League of Wisdom is a new online initiative from The Wisdom Trust to help students, of all ages, to become more aware about the big global issues affecting the future of our planet and about hundreds of simple things they (and their families) can do to help make a difference. It's a monthly competition where schools (and their students) compete together on a field of learning to discover which school can consistently deliver the highest level of learning through The Wisdom Trust's online education programmes.

Students will be awarded credits as they learn more about the big global issues, via The Wisdom Trust's online education programmes, and can aspire to be the best in their class or school, each day, every week or every month. All participating schools will compete together to be the champion school each month, based on how much their students are learning through The Wisdom Trust website, compared to students at other schools. This will operate on a simple 'round-robin' league basis, with schools competing together in pairs each day and measured on how many credits their students accumulate.. The champion school each month will receive a trophy and possibly also a visit from a celebrity or VIP to present the trophy and inspire the students with a short talk. With more and more schools taking part, there will be the opportunity to set up multiple divisions (just like in a football league) with promotion and relegation (perhaps even end-of-month play-offs too) to make it even more exciting and interesting for the students so that they want to learn more to help their school be the champion school.
