PON funded programmes: exploring the opportunities
3 February 2016

English UK members are invited to join an information session on PON funding on Wednesday 24 February in London. Around 20,000 young people studied English abroad in 2014 with support from PON funding, which amounts to three billion euros for 2014-2020.

Jointly delivered by English UK, the British Council and Trinity College London the session will explore both opportunities and issues associated with National Operational Programme (PON) funding managed by the Italian Ministry of Education.

Join us from 1pm to find out more about PON, recently introduced 'Prevent' requirements (compliance with the Counter-Terrorism Act 2015) and new criteria for Care of under 18s, especially in the context of PON groups.

Cost per participant: £35 for English UK members, £50 for non-English UK members
