Erasmus+ supports training assignments at adult education organisations abroad. These opportunities can consist of structured courses, training periods abroad, job shadowing or observation periods at schools or other relevant organisations. Examples of such organisations include adult learning centres, higher education institutions, public bodies, research institutes and organisations providing courses and training.
A training assignment must last a minimum of 2 days and cannot last more than 2 months. This excludes travelling time.
To train abroad with Erasmus+, your organisation must apply to participate in a mobility project. The mobility project must set out your professional development goals as a member of staff and make sure that what you learn is both properly recognised and shared throughout your institution.
EU grants are designed to cover your costs for travel and subsistence during your time abroad and courses fees, as well as offering organisational support to participating organisations. The grants are managed by the adult education organisations involved and they are responsible for it.
You cannot apply for a grant as an individual. Applications must be made by adult education institutions who in turn select candidates for training assignments abroad from their staff. The selection of staff to train abroad should be fair, transparent and well documented.
