British Council Connecting Classrooms Grant Application Support

The third Connecting Classrooms programme (CC3) is due to be rolled out in March 2016.

CC3 is different is a number of aspects to CC2, which will be evident when the details are published. However, one aspect of the new grant programme that schools can address, is the requirement for schools to have at least one teacher who has completed one of the Core Skills training courses that the British Council are offering free to schools.


The CC3 grant is likely to be £3000, although this may have to be allocated in a different way to previous programmes. Full details will be sent to registered schools, or can be found on the British Council website.
