Erasmus+ is the European Union programme for Education, Training, Youth, and Sport for 2014-2020. It offers schools and other organisations funding opportunities, including support for training courses and mobility activities for professional development or for the development of project partnerships.

In the Erasmus+ funding opportunities for schools course, you will discover two different funding opportunities your school can benefit from:

  • Learning mobility of individuals (Key Action 1) and
  • Strategic Partnership projects including School Exchange Partnerships (Key Action 2).

 

Join us to learn more about the Erasmus+ programme framework, and to get inspired by concrete examples of school education projects. On this course, you will also find information on how to link your whole-school approach to the funding application, and how to use the School Education Gateway’s Erasmus+ Tools to support the application process.

The course is entirely free and is organised as a MOOC, allowing anyone to join. You will receive digital module badges for every completed module of the course, as well as a course badge upon completion of the full course. All badges can be exported to the Mozilla Backpack.

This is a re-run of the course that took place a year ago.

The course will be taught in English.

Start date

Monday, 12 November 2018

Duration

The course consists of 4 modules. Its official running period is 4 weeks, from 12 November to 19 December. We recommend completing the course during this official running period. All the course content will remain accessible after that until the end of February 2019. The expected workload is about 2-4 hours a week, depending on your level of engagement.

Target audience

The course is of relevance to teachers, school leaders and other school staff interested in applying for such funding, but also to schools and other organisations interested in listing any opportunities they provide. You will not need any prior knowledge of the School Education Gateway platform and its services.

Certification

You will receive digital module badges for every completed module of the course as well as a course badge upon completion of the full course. Please note there is no certificate for completing this course because there is no peer-review activity to be assessed, i.e. no validation of your learning achievement. All badges can be exported to the Mozilla Badge Backpack.
