Enabling schools in more than 40 European countries to collaborate online

Since the launch of eTwinning in 2005, there have been more than 440,000 teachers who have registered to the platform, of which 23,000 are UK teachers who have taken part in over 9,000 school projects. All school levels, from nursery to sixth form and further education colleges are eligible to join, 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.

The National Agency for Erasmus+ in the UK, a partnership between the British Council and Ecorys UK, remains wholly committed to the programme and its benefits. We hope that the UK can continue to be a member of the programme, so that at least 250,000 people across the UK have the chance to study, train or volunteer abroad, and that organisations can continue to collaborate through to 2020 as planned.

2016 was the most popular year so far for Erasmus+ in the UK. As the UK continues to be a full EU member in 2017, we’d like to emphasise that successful applicants in 2017 will be awarded funding for the duration of their project, so organisations and participants should continue to prepare for the application deadlines in 2017 as usual. We cannot speculate on any possible future scenarios following the UK’s exit from the EU, but note the Government position is that UK participation in some EU programmes may continue subject to the negotiation.
