€36 million of Erasmus+ funding is reserved in 2019 for UK schools and colleges providing general, vocational or technical education to pupils aged 3 – 18 years. The funding supports professional development for teaching and non-teaching staff. It can cover job-shadowing and teaching placements overseas, or staff can join training courses on hot topics such as school leadership, mental health, languages, digital learning, STEM and much more.
The funding also supports pupil exchanges in Europe and enables UK schools to work on exciting projects with schools abroad. We have some good examples from Northern Ireland available on our website and are always keen to develop more.
There are two main application deadlines: 5 February and 21 March 2019. Schools can apply individually or as a consortium and we will offer support to applicants through webinars and one-to-one appointments.
Please find out more and apply for Erasmus+ Schools funding now.
