“Two worlds together are a lot stronger than one; because there is always another world that they can rely on.” Student's poem inspired by Connecting Classrooms, Nova Hreod College, Swindon
The British Council offers funding of £1,500 for partnerships between schools in the UK and other countries.
The partnership offers young people the chance to collaborate directly with their international peers, bringing challenging global issues to life and creating meaningful cross-cultural relationships.
The grant must be spent on visits from at least one teacher from each of the schools in the partnership. It should be used to cover the cost of flights, accommodation, travel insurance, local transport, visas, vaccinations, and food.
If you successfully applied for funding, we will help you with guidance on how to apply for top-up grants, how to plan your partnership visit, what measures you can take to improve the sustainability of your partnership and final reporting. You can find this information on our resources page.
