Funding and opportunities
Global School Transformation

Strengthening a school’s global dimensions requires time and investment in professional development for teachers and opportunities for cultural exchange for students. That’s why we are investing £300,000 into transforming 100 schools (as part of the 100 Schools Challenge) and are taking applications from October 2022.

With the launch of the Global Education Fund, we have pledged to invest £10,000,000 over the next 10 years in transforming global education. The funding will be delivered through the “Global School Transformation” programme that will be formally launched worldwide in January 2023.

The Global School Transformation programme combines digital products and fully-immersive experiences to broaden horizons, establish global partnerships and engage in international exchanges anywhere in the world.
