We offer many ways to help enhance learning and teaching in schools in Scotland. Raising attainment, building literacy and numeracy, and helping bridge the attainment gap are high on the schools agenda. An international dimension can be motivational for staff and learners, and has been shown to make a real difference in these priority areas.
Our professional development opportunities, curriculum resources and international linking programmes offer a range of exciting and innovative approaches to learning and raising attainment.
The Turing Scheme is the UK government’s global programme to study and work abroad. The scheme provides funding for international opportunities in education and training across the world. The Scheme unlocks the opportunity for UK schools to offer life-changing experiences across the world for their pupils and learners.
Eligible schools can apply for funding through the Turing Scheme for projects that offer your pupils the opportunity to learn new skills, raise aspirations and get a better understanding of other cultures. You can send your pupils to take part in short-term and long-term placements abroad for the 2021-22 academic year.
