The British Council’s Connecting Classrooms fund is open for applications. Grants of £3,000 are available to enable teachers (who have completed the British Council’s ‘Teaching Core Skills’ training programme) and a school leader to visit a partner school overseas.
Each visit will involve participating in an event, arranged in country by the British Council. The events will bring together schools from the UK, their partners and other local schools to share experiences and good practice of implementing core skills within the curriculum.
To be eligible to apply, the UK school will have identified a partner school in one of the following countries:
- Sri Lanka
- Sierra Leone
- South Africa
Schools engaged in Professional Partnerships with partner schools in the MENA region (Middle East and North Africa) are invited to apply for a fully-funded opportunity to attend a partnership visit in Amman, Jordan in February 2018.
The next closing date for applications is the 18th September 2017.
