GET STARTED ON ETWINNING: THREE SIMPLE STEPS

It’s a good idea to register with eTwinning before you apply for Erasmus+ funding. As a teacher in a school or college, eTwinning enables you to search for potential Erasmus+ partners from schools across Europe, engage in online partnerships and carry out projects within a secure platform - free of charge.  

  1. Register on www.eTwinning.net. Please note that your login details will also work on the School Education Gateway, where you can also find staff professional development and strategic partnership opportunities that qualify for Erasmus+ funding.
  2. Search and connect with a partner teacher who is ready to start an Erasmus+ project (you can indicate this on your eTwinning teachers desktop profile). Register an eTwinning project with your prospective Erasmus+ partner (which will also secure the foundation level of the International School Award for your school).
  3. Apply for Erasmus+ funding for your project.

Contact us via eTwinning@britishcouncil.org. Tell us that you would like us to arrange for a fully funded workshop at your school, or at a suitable location in your region and we will send a local eTwinning ambassador to help kick-start your eTwinning-Erasmus+ international journey.
