The Turing Scheme - FE, VET funding and Schools funding
The Turing Scheme provides funding to UK organisations to unlock life-changing experiences across the world for their pupils, students and learners.
Schools, colleges and higher education providers apply for funding for projects on behalf of their pupils, students and learners. If you are based in one of these organisations you may be eligible to take part. It does not matter if you are a full time or part time student.
Participating in a Turing Scheme placement will give you the chance to develop new skills, gain vital international experience and boost your employability. You can also develop professional practice, a wide range of soft skills, and language skills. You will build relationships with international peers and gain fresh ideas and a better understanding of other cultures.
Who is Eligible?
Higher education (HE) students - you can study in another university or you can gain valuable international work experience through a traineeship in an organisation abroad, across the world.
Apprentices and learners in further education (FE) and vocational education and training (VET) - you can take part in short or long-term traineeships abroad, or learn at a partner FE or VET provider.
Recent HE and VET graduates (including former apprentices) - you can carry out a traineeship abroad within 12 months of graduating.
Those not in permanent education or training - if you are re-training or upskilling through a college or school, you can take part in a traineeship abroad.
School pupils - you can study abroad in a partner school or organisation on short and long-term placements. Short-term placements are for pupils of any age, but pupils must be accompanied by school staff. Long-term placements are open to pupils aged at least 14.
