UK-German Connection an organisation dedicated to increasing contacts and understanding between young people in the UK and Germany has announced that its Partnerships in Learning funding programme is open for applications.
The funding programme aims to support UK-German school partnerships undertaking a variety of educational activities in both countries, including peer learning, with a flexible thematic and cross-year approach relevant to the curriculum. The maximum grant available is £5,000, which is to be shared between the participating schools to support costs such as travel and accommodation for reciprocal partner visits, project resources and joint activities.
Applicants must contribute at least 25% of the overall eligible activity costs through participants’ contributions and other sources of funding. For example, Wishaw/Shotts Youth Exchange Group in North Lanarkshire and Kreisjugendring Wunsiedel worked on an exchange to promote European citizenship and investigate what life was like living on a border.
The deadline for applications is the 31st May 2017.
