Travel grants are still available for secondary schools in England to take your pupils on international school visits. The DfE and British Council joint project means a secondary school can use the grant to enhance any curriculum subject teaching: it does not have to be a language exchange.
Grants are aimed at young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. Priority will be given to applications that show the school, college, or the group of students involved in the visit have significant levels of disadvantage (e.g., Pupil Premium, Opportunity Area, Index of Multiple Deprivation, Additional Needs etc).
Applications must be in by 14th February and the travel has to be completed by 31 May 2020.
