eTwinning

Enabling teachers and students in 40+ European countries to collaborate online

There have been more than 300,000 teacher registrations across Europe on www.etwinning.net. The UK has now seen 20,000 registrations and over 7,800 projects have taken place in the UK since the programme launched in 2005. All school levels, from nursery to sixth form and further education colleges are eligible and the programme is applicable to all areas of the curriculum.

eTwinning is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union and is managed in the UK by the British Council. The British Council is the UK’s National Agency for Erasmus+, in partnership with Ecorys UK.

uk national agency statement

On 28 June, the UK National Agency (UK NA) published the following statement on the Erasmus+ website, which we are now echoing to all eTwinners:

"There is no immediate change to the UK’s participation in the eTwinning programme under Erasmus+ following the EU referendum result and the UK National Support Service will continue to manage and deliver eTwinning for the UK.

All participants should continue with their eTwinning planning or activities in 2016 and 2017.

This position is supported by the statement from Jo Johnson, Minister of State for Universities and Science, published on 28 June 2016. His statement also outlines some initial information regarding the UK’s future access to the Erasmus+ programme and we will update all those involved in the eTwinning and Erasmus+ programmes when further information becomes available".

The European Commission (EC) has also published an update on their Erasmus+ website here which links to an article on the UK’s status within the EU here.
