Erasmus+ funding for schools - call for applications

The Controlled Schools' Support Council is delighted to have secured €140,000 of Erasmus+ funding for its project designed to enhance pupil performance in solving problems within mathematics.

We would encourage controlled schools to apply for the next tranche of funding.

There are two main application deadlines for 2019 - 5 February and 21 March.  Schools can apply individually or as a consortium.  Erasmus+ will offer support to applicants through webinars and one to one appointments.

€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 here and are always keen to develop more.
