Join today and stay informed about European policy and action for schools! The School Education Gateway is funded by Erasmus+, the European programme for Education, Training, Youth and Sport. It is operated for the Directorate General for Education and Culture of the European Commission by European Schoolnet, an international partnership of 31 European Ministries of Education developing learning for schools, teachers and pupils across Europe. The School Education Gateway is linked to eTwinning, the community for schools in Europe.
