Fol­low­ing the announce­ment ear­li­er this year that Not­ting­ham Col­lege was suc­cess­ful in attract­ing over £250k in fund­ing from the Tur­ing Scheme to widen over­seas oppor­tu­ni­ties for our FE stu­dents, a series of once in a life­time work expe­ri­ence oppor­tu­ni­ties have been confirmed.

The fund­ed trips*, which include Thai­land, Nepal, Ger­many, Italy, France and The Nether­lands will give our stu­dents the oppor­tu­ni­ty to enhance their CVs and gain valu­able expe­ri­ence relat­ed to their courses. 

About the Tur­ing scheme

The Tur­ing Scheme is the UK government’s glob­al pro­gramme to study and work abroad. The scheme pro­vides fund­ing for inter­na­tion­al oppor­tu­ni­ties in edu­ca­tion and train­ing across the world. 

Sup­port­ing the government’s Glob­al Britain objec­tives, the Tur­ing Scheme unlocks the oppor­tu­ni­ty for UK edu­ca­tion providers to offer life-chang­ing expe­ri­ences across the world for their students.

The programmes

This will be the first year of deliv­ery of these pro­grammes and the Tur­ing Project Team will be look­ing to devel­op and expand the range of oppor­tu­ni­ties across the cur­ricu­lum over the next few years, espe­cial­ly in the light of the government’s bud­get announce­ment last week that has con­firmed that the Tur­ing Scheme has been extend­ed for a fur­ther 3 years.
