HERE ARE SOME OF THE IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT MOBILITIES IN ERASMUS+!

OVERVIEW

 

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. 

  • Duration

A training assignment must last a minimum of 2 days and cannot last more than 2 months. This excludes travelling time.

  • Conditions

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.

  • Financial support

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.

  • How to apply

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. 

 

WHAT IS THE OPPORTUNITY?

 

Erasmus+ supports training activities abroad for professionals involved in pre-primary, primary and secondary school education,  as well as for other organisations (NGOs) to send or receive adult education staff for teaching assignments, as well as to give or receive training.

  • How does it work?

Organisations wanting to take part in these opportunities can either apply as an individual organisation, or as part of a “national mobility consortium”; a group of adult education organisations managed by a single coordinating organisation. These organisations fall into one of three main categories:

  • Applicant Organisations – responsible for applying for and managing the project and also acting as a sending organisation,
  • Sending Organisations – an organisation in charge of selecting staff to send abroad and managing grant payments,
  • Receiving Organisations – responsible for receiving staff from abroad. Receiving organisations must be course providers if staff are to receive structured courses or participate in a training event. In other cases, the receiving organisation can be any relevant organisation active in the field, but must outline the objectives and activities in advance, as well as the rights and obligations of all parties.

Organisations applying as a consortium must all be based in the same country, and must all be identified at the application. All participating organisations must be based in a Programme Country.

  • How do you apply?

The application process is managed by the National Agency of where the applicant organisation or consortium is based. An organisation or consortium can only apply once per round of selections, although organisations can take part in or coordinate several different consortia.

 

LEARNING MOBILITY

 

Learning mobility opportunities aim to encourage the mobility of students, staff, trainees, apprentices, youth workers and young people. The role of the organisations in this process is to organise these opportunities for individuals. The benefits for the organisations include an increased capacity to operate at an international level, improved management skills, access to more funding opportunities and projects, increased ability to prepare, manage, and follow-up projects, a more attractive portfolio of opportunities for students and staff at participating organisations, the opportunity to develop innovative projects with partners from around the world.

KA1 Opportunities

  • Vocational education and training learners and staff: Organisations can send or receive apprentices and students for vocational traineeships abroad, as well as send staff for teaching or training.
  • School education staff: Schools can send and receive staff for teaching and professional development.
  • Adult education staff: Opportunities are available for adult education organisations to send or receive staff for teaching and training, as well as to provide courses.
  • Young people and youth workers: Organisations can apply to run projects. For young people, these include youth exchanges, allowing groups of young people to live and work together for up to three weeks. For youth workers, projects focus on training and networking.
