The Turing Scheme offers a range of benefits for schools and students, making it an excellent opportunity that should not be missed. It provides funding for schools in the United Kingdom and the British Overseas Territories to support student exchange trips worldwide, giving students unique, first-hand insights into the world’s diverse cultures, societies, environments, and heritage.

By exploring and understanding different cultures and ways of thinking, students gain a broader worldview, which enhances their engagement, enthusiasm, and aspirations for learning. With the Turing Scheme, students can participate in life-changing opportunities that create empathy, confidence, self-esteem, teamwork, and language skills.

The Global School Alliance plays a vital role in supporting schools in their Turing Scheme applications, with a team of experts that provide designated support. A total of over £1.6 million has been accessed by our supported schools since the scheme launched in 2021.

With the funding allocated for 2023/24, over 400 students will visit partner schools in countries such as China, Spain, Morocco, Brazil, and France.

By participating in the Turing Scheme, schools can offer additional support to pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds, helping to remove barriers to participation in life-changing opportunities. In addition, participating schools will develop international links and gain access to fresh ideas that could lead to enhanced innovation in their schools, while gaining increased public recognition for offering such enriching opportunities.

With the Turing Scheme being a truly global programme, students can visit any country or territory compliant with the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office’s travel advice.
