Stevenson Welcomes EU Erasmus+ Funding for Banff School

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed a funding award for Banff Primary School which has played a part in Scotland receiving its largest ever allocation of EU Erasmus+ funding – up nearly €5million since last year.

New figures from the British Council Scotland and Ecorys, the agency delivering the European Union scheme, show that a total of €21million is being shared by 159 Scottish organisations working in a range of sectors such as schools, colleges and universities.

Banff Primary School was successful in applying for €10,825 for language development.

Stewart Stevenson is encouraging local organisations to engage with Erasmus+ and apply for funding. He said:

“I congratulate Banff Primary School and everyone involved in this successful funding bid. This is a significant sum which will help provide substantial assistance with the development of the pupils’ language skills.”

Director of the British Council Scotland Jackie Killeen said:

“Enabling people and organisations in communities all over Scotland to learn from and share with their international counterparts is at the very heart of what we do.

“These new figures for Erasmus+ demonstrate the huge appetite across Scotland’s education and youth training sectors for international exchange, collaboration and partnership.”
