Teachers, school leaders and other staff working in pre-primary, primary, secondary, vet and high schools as well as adult education institutions, in program countries, in their studies and receive more training by joining a variety of interesting courses abroad. Such courses also ensure an exchange of knowledge and best practices in education
How can one apply for funding?
First of all, organizations intending to take part in Erasmus+ Program need to register in the Unique Registration Facility (URF) of the EU’s Participant Portal. The PIC number has nine-digits and it enables the organization to benefit from the some features of the electronic application form. Secondly schools and institutions must draw up a development plan and organize mobility activities for their staff to receive further training abroad.
The Head of School or organisation has to submit to a single grant application which will allow the school or institution to organize a set of mobility activities abroad for its staff and students.
The school / institution development plan should be thought through thoroughly. In the application form, the Head of School will need to indicate the number of staff members and students who will benefit from the funds, the type of training needed and the destination countries for the mobility activities.
This means that individuals will no longer fill in their own application forms but will be sent for training by the school /institution they work for.
Where can one find the application form?
The application form is available for downloading at the Erasmus+ website and that of the National Agency of the applicant country. Application forms must be submitted to the National Agency of the applicant country.
