ACCESS ERASMUS+ FUNDING FOR YOUR SCHOOL
As part of the Erasmus+ programme, eTwinning can be an important part of Erasmus+ as it is the easiest way for teachers to find and get to know partners whom they can then apply for funding with. The eTwinning platform can also be used to securely host, support and share Erasmus+ project work - all for free!
Erasmus+ offers schools funding for life-changing international activities. €36 million is proposed for UK schools in 2019, up from €30 million in 2018.
- pupils can take part in international exchanges and study experiences - to develop new skills, raise their aspirations and gain vital international experience
- staff can teach, train or job shadow abroad - to develop their professional practice, build relationships with international peers and gain fresh ideas
- schools can collaborate with international partners - to drive innovation, share best practice, and offer new opportunities to young people.
The funding is open to UK schools and colleges providing general, vocational or technical education to pupils aged 3–18 years. Schools can apply individually, or as a consortium. The funding covers support for participants with disabilities or special educational needs.
A series of events will be held across the UK during January 2019 to support schools applying for Erasmus+ funding under the 2019 Call. Book your place now.
