Schools are invited to register their interest in a new international exchange programme for pupils aged 11 and above.
The Department for Education has announced a new £2.5million programme that it will launch later in 2019 in partnership with the British Council. Schools in England will be able to apply for grants to take pupils overseas to experience different cultures in Europe or further afield, improve their language skills and build independence, character and resilience.
The programme will fund trips for an estimated 2,900 pupils. It will be aimed at young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, and schools with above-average numbers of pupil premium students will be encouraged to participate.
The programme is designed to make life easier for schools, with a simple application process, grants to cover administrative costs, and seminars to help schools without much experience of international visits to find partner institutions abroad.
