The European Commission has announced that grants of up to €150,000 per year for up to 3 years are available to schools to develop strategic partnerships with other school in the European Union.
The funding is being made available through Erasmus + Strategic Partnerships Programme. The aim of the partnership is to create a partnership between UK and European Union schools to tackle particular issues related to schools education, such as teaching standards, entrepreneurship, citizenship, basic skills or linguistic skills; etc.
Applications can be submitted by any UK organisation involved in school education (including UK schools at any level, from pre-school to secondary education, and including vocational education and adult education). The funding is also available to regional authorities to promote the development of education, training and youth systems. Partnership must include 3 partners from 3 different Programme Countries, including the applicant organisation. However, school-only Strategic Partnerships only require a minimum of 2 partners from 2 different Programme Countries.
The closing date for applications is 11am on the 29th March 2017.
