Swiss and Indian schools apply by means of a form and cover letter. They demonstrate what they can bring to a partnership, how they would like to make use of a partnership and are able to integrate one into everyday school life.
In the process, the following funding criteria should be taken into consideration:
Moreover, the following priorities have been set:
First step: manifest your interest by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please ensure that you can count on the support of the school principal.
Once the project is completed, a final report, including final accounts, is to be sent to Movetia. Please find the template here. The final report and accounts must be submitted to Movetia no later than two months after the end of the project.
Furthermore, the participating pupils must complete an online evaluation after the exchange. This evaluation can be found here.
The funding of class exchange projects is based on flat-rate contributions (allowances) for fixed categories of grants:
|Travel cost allowance for the pupils and for two Swiss and two Indian teachers each (accompanying persons)||CHF 800 per person, up to 20 pupils|
|Initial contact trip for teachers (1 Swiss, 1 Indian)||CHF 1500 per teacher|
The focus of the trip to visit the partner class is project work, not sight-seeing.
