While we have plenty of opportunities for schools from other countries to to meet face-to-face, virtual partnerships offer teachers and pupils who are unable to travel an opportunity to work and learn with a school from another country and culture. We also have resources that you can use to make the most of your partnership.
Funding is available to support partnerships between cluster schools in the UK and overseas. This includes free CPD training for teachers, supply cover, funding for pupil collaborative projects and community events.
Virtual partnership funding is not currently available for schools engaged in one-to-one partnerships. However, resources are available online to all schools, helping those who are new to international collaboration that want to get started with some simple activities based around getting to know their partner or interested in collaborating with others on a smaller scale.
