    eTwinning is a free and secure online network, where teachers from more than 40 countries can find partners, work on projects and enable pupil collaboration across any subject area. as well as offering free resources, professional development, competitions and awards, eTwinning can be the first step towards the international school award and Erasmus+ funding.

    If you are interested in applying for Erasmus+ funding, you can search and find partners using the platform OR if you are already beneficiaries of Erasmus+ funding, KA1: you could find teachers to job shadow or for KA2 use the secure online space to support and manage your project work.

    Both teachers and students can store and share their work online in this space and pages can be made public or private.

    You can use the tools that already there in the twinspace, like chat rooms, Adobe Live webinar conferencing, blogs to support your project work and meet up with your partner teachers and classes.

    You could invite other teachers in your school to join eTwinning to help widen the international work in your school.

    Its really easy and very flexible -projects can be as long or as short as you like. Teachers meet peers from over 40 countries and can dip their toes in international projects.

    National projects are also an option work with someone in another school in the UK.
