The British Council is the United Kingdom’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. As part of their work they provide funding for a range of international work between schools and local authorities.
Comenius is the name of part of their Lifelong Learning Programme. Comenius provides opportunities for schools and colleges to introduce or strengthen the European dimension in their curriculum. The new Comenius Regio partnerships allow local authorities to participate directly.
The different strands of Comenius are intended to complement each other, and it is perfectly possible to participate in more than one area of activity at the same time. More information here.
