If your school is setting up or developing international projects, but you could do with some funding or support, then you’ve come to the right place.
The British Council administers funding for school partnerships via the European Union, the Foreign Office and the Department for International Development.
Generally, this funding requires that schools establish long-term, equal partnerships and provide evidence of collaborative projects that enhance curricular work.
