FUNDING AVAILABLE: UP TO £3,000 PER RECIPROCAL VISIT
Both schools within the partnership can apply for up to £1,500 to support a visit to their partner. That’s up to £3,000 per reciprocal visit — to help one teacher from the UK visit the partner school overseas, and one teacher from overseas visit the partner school in the UK.
The grant should be used for flights, transfers to and from the airport in both countries, accommodation, subsistence, visa costs, essential vaccinations and travel insurance.
We equally welcome applications where a visit to the UK or a visit from the UK will take place first.
Visits can happen at any time during the partnership providing it’s term time where the visit is taking place. It’s worth remembering though that visits which take place sooner rather than later allow more time for collaborative working and to overcome any unexpected issues with visas etc.
Prior to making an application, all schools will need to complete our self-assessment activity. Any training that is identified must be completed before participating in a visit.
During the visit, schools are expected to spend at least 3-4 days at their overseas partner school comparing global learning practice and implementing transferable skills in the classroom and school. They'll also need to spend at least one day planning, or starting to implement, the collaborative project that they have chosen to work on together.
