The Turing Scheme is the UK government’s scheme to provide funding for international opportunities in education and training across the world. It supports Global Britain by providing an opportunity for UK organizations from the higher education, further education, vocational education and training and schools sector to offer their students, learners and pupils life-changing experiences to study or work abroad.
The Turing Scheme has four main objectives:
• Global Britain – In line with the UK Government’s vision of a Global Britain, Turing Scheme projects support high-quality placements, enhance existing partnerships and encourage the forging of new relationships across the world.
• Levelling Up – Turing Scheme projects widen participation and support social mobility across the UK. They should help and promote equal access and opportunities to all students, learners and pupils regardless of background.
• Developing Key Skills – The projects offer unique, career-building opportunities. They give participants the hard and soft skills sought by employers, and bridge the gap between education and work.
• Value for UK taxpayers – These projects optimise social value in terms of potential costs, benefits and risks.
