New Connecting Classrooms Through Global Learning Programme Launched – 27th January 2020 (UK)

The British Council in partnership with the Department for International Development is inviting state funded schools to apply to the Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning Programme to enable UK schools to work with partner schools overseas; focusing on global themes. The programme provides grants to clusters of schools or one-to-one school partnership.

Fee paying schools can opt to join a cluster group with state-funded schools and still benefit from many elements of the programme. However, any fee-paying schools that want to organise a visit overseas would need to self-fund their trip.

Clusters of Schools can apply for grants of up to £35,000 to support a wide range of global learning activities, including training for teachers and supply cover, reciprocal visits to international partners schools, and hosting community events.

One-to-one school partnerships can apply for grants of up to £3,000 to cover the cost of one teacher to travel to a partner school. The grant is used to cover the cost of one teacher travelling to the UK from overseas and one teacher travelling from the UK to the other country.

To apply for funding, schools must have a partner school outside the UK from the British Council’s list of participating countries.

Cluster applications will also be favoured over one-to-one partnership applications in the first instance.

The next closing date for applications is the 27th January 2020.
