Funded Teacher Training events coming up

 There are a number of teacher training events coming up from November 2013 - June 2014 in Paris and the Netherlands, and teachers from the UK can apply for funding to cover the costs of these events from the British Council Comenius Scheme (teachers from other countries can apply for funding from their national agencies).

For events running from 1 January 2014 and 30 April 2014 the deadline for applying for funding is 17th September 2014.

For events running in May and June, the deadline for applications will be early-mid January.

Details of the events are summarised below, together with links for more information.

Further details on funding for these courses can be found from the British Council website here: http://www.britishcouncil.org/comenius-how-to-apply.htm

There is also a link to an ESA/GTTP workshop which is NOT eligible for British Council funding, but a maximum of 400 euro per selected participant will be available towards travel expenses from ESA/GTTP.
