Every year, the Erasmus+ programme funds thousands of school projects and professional development activities for teachers and other school staff. In this course we help teachers, head teachers and project leaders get started on the path to finding Erasmus+ funding, and inspire you to make development project ideas a reality.

The course focuses on two funding opportunities that schools can benefit from: learning mobility of individuals (Key Action 1) and Strategic Partnership projects (Key Action 2) including School Exchange Partnerships. It provides concrete examples for projects in school education, explains the whole-school approach to European projects, introduces the School Education Gateway tools that help you ‘fast track’ your Erasmus+ application, and offers practical advice on preparing a competitive proposal.

This is a rerun of the course that took place in 2017 and 2018.
