How to raise funding with ACUK. 

Thomas Camilleri founded ACUK Education in 2011 because he was inspired by a life-changing trip to China at the age of 15. Since then ACUK has worked, and continue to work hard to connect UK schools with China. We recognise the amount of opportunity there can be by connecting with China. Because of this we try to make this process as easy and cost-effective as possible by helping schools with funding.  


We have created a number of different ways for schools to raise funds for international programmes. Firstly we offer a 100% reimbursable Headteacher delegation. This gives you the chance to experience China for yourself and establish a sister school partnership. The amount for the Headteacher delegation is reimbursed once your school has launched a UK outbound trip to China. 

Be Proud, Be the Host

You can also raise funds by hosting Chinese students at your school. We run a programme called Be Proud, Be the Host which provides you with the opportunity to invite Chinese students into your school. Head over to our Be Proud, Be the Host page by clicking HERE to find out more about how this programme can help your school raise funds. 

A further £2000 funding is available for schools that attend the programme for CPD on international partnership management!
