Enabling schools in more than 40 European countries to collaborate online
In October 2017 www.eTwinning.net celebrated half a million registrations (including 25,000 teachers from the UK), making it the largest teachers’ network in the world. Since 2005, over 64,000 eTwinning projects have taken place - 9,000 of these have been in the UK - benefitting thousands of pupils of all ages and abilities.
All school levels, from nursery to sixth form and further education colleges are eligible to join eTwinning, it's free 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.
Register on the pan European portal via www.eTwinning.net.
The UK Government has stated publicly that the United Kingdom is committed to continuing full participation in the Erasmus+ programme up until we leave the European Union. The Government has now agreed a fair financial settlement with the EU enabling it to move to the next stage of negotiations. With the caveat that “nothing is agreed until everything is agreed”, in principle the UK will continue to benefit from all EU programmes, including Erasmus+, until the end of the current budget plan (2014-2020).
UK organisations wishing to apply for funding in 2018 should prepare for participation as usual ahead of the 2018 application deadlines. The 2018 Call for Proposals was published on 25 October 2017.
