Apply today for funding for international school visits
Travel grants are now available for secondary school or further education colleges in England to take your pupils on international school visits, through a new Department for Education programme in partnership with the British Council.
Give your students a truly intercultural experience with these grants for travel to visit a partner school or college. The visit can be used to enhance any curriculum subject teaching: it does not have to be a language exchange, although these are welcomed.
Visits should have a curriculum focus. They do not need to focus on language learning, although we welcome those that do.
Grants are aimed at young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. Priority will be given to applications that show the school, college, or the group of students involved in the visit have significant levels of disadvantage (e.g., Pupil Premium, Opportunity Area, Index of Multiple Deprivation, Additional Needs etc).
Grants of up to £15,000 are available for each school or college and visits must be completed by 31 May 2020.
Deadlines are rolling, with the final deadline on 14 February 2020, so apply today.
