CollegesWales International leads on delivering overseas development opportunities for both learners and staff in further education. These opportunities are made possible through funded mobility programmes such as the Welsh Government international learning exchange programme, Taith, and the UK Government international opportunities programme, Turing Scheme.

“Spending time studying, volunteering, training or on work placements abroad broadens horizons, expands key skills, and brings benefits not only to individual participants but also to communities and organisations here in Wales. CollegesWales is encouraged that young people from all backgrounds can benefit from the variety of opportunities on offer through these different programmes.”

Siân Holleran, CollegesWales International Project Manager  

CollegesWales International supports the Welsh Government commitment to ensuring that Wales remains an outward-looking nation by facilitating FE college participation in overseas mobility and partnership projects. CollegesWales facilitates the participation of our member colleges through its pan-Wales consortium applications. We also support colleges to submit their own funding applications. 

CollegesWales International has a robust network of partners worldwide with whom we collaborate to offer international enrichment and enhancement opportunities to learners and staff. We also encourage reciprocal visits so that our partners can come to Wales for study, training and to share good practice.
