Connecting Classrooms Through Global Learning Programme: 

Funding for On-line and Face-to-face Global Partnerships:

This is the last chance to take part in this fantastic programme in its current form with projects taking place over the Autumn Term. 

Schools can apply for grant funding to support their online collaboration and global learning with new or existing partners in the following countries:  https://connecting-classrooms.britishcouncil.org/partner-with-schools/before-find-partner/participating-countries

For virtual projects, funds can be spent on: CPD, supply cover, project work, dissemination of impact/celebrations and overseas communication costs (travel not included) and applicants will have flexibility on how that amount is spent across these eligible costs. Schools in the UK must be linked with an equal number of schools in a participating country overseas and are required to implement a collaborative pupil project linked to the Sustainable Development Goals. Schools can also apply for funding for face-to-face visits (although travel is obviously not currently possible). 

There are lots of FREE and easy resources / project templates to use and support throughout the application process and beyond. 

We have lots of colleagues in Nepal and other parts of the world who are particularly keen to work with UK schools!

The last application deadline is 14th June
