Funding for school exchanges and partner finding visits - a notice from the British Council

Give your students a truly intercultural experience  by applying for a grant for travel to visit a partner school. The visit can be used to enhance curriculum teaching, improve language learning or help build soft skills.

Grants are aimed at young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. Priority will be given to applications that show the school, or the group of students being visited, have significant levels of disadvantage (e.g., Pupil Premium, Opportunity Area, Index of Multiple Deprivation, Additional Needs etc). Visits do not need to include homestay.
