UK schools that wish to organise reciprocal visits to their existing partner schools in France can apply for funding of up to £5,000 through the Lefèvre Trust.
The Trust must involve pupils aged 11 – 19 that work with their partner school on joint curriculum based projects. The programme aims to give more young people the knowledge, skills and understanding to work not only bilaterally but in a global context – and contribute responsibly to society – locally and globally. The British Council will accept grant applications from schools, sixth form colleges and comparable institutions providing full-time general, vocational, technical or special needs education. Both private and government institutions are eligible to apply. For example, Barr’s Hill School, Coventry received funding to liaise with Collège Roland Vaudatin near Saint Malo, France.
The closing date for applications is the 15th May 2017.
