Schools can use online tools to work together on projects themed on the United Nations Global Goals for Sustainable Development. They can also share experiences and methods of teaching.

To apply for funding, you must have a partner school outside the UK from our list of participating countries. You should be working together either in a one-to-one partnership or as part of a cluster group with a minimum of four schools, two UK and two outside the UK.

Grants are eligible to be spent only on the following:

  • Project work and dissemination, sharing the results of the project among the wider community
  • Supply cover
  • Training and communications.  

Depending on the numbers of schools in your application you will be eligible for different amounts of funding.

A PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN 2 SCHOOLS (1 UK, 1 OVERSEAS) £400
A CLUSTER BETWEEN 4 SCHOOLS (2 UK, 2 OVERSEAS) £2,000
A CLUSTER BETWEEN 6 SCHOOLS (3 UK, 3 OVERSEAS) £2,500
A CLUSTER BETWEEN 8 SCHOOLS (4 UK, 4 OVERSEAS) £3,000
A CLUSTER BETWEEN 10 SCHOOLS (5 UK, 5 OVERSEAS) £4,000
A CLUSTER BETWEEN 12 SCHOOLS (6 UK, 6 OVERSEAS)
£5,000
A CLUSTER BETWEEN 20 SCHOOLS (10 UK, 10 OVERSEAS)
