Every year, the European Union funds thousands of mobilities and professional development activities for teachers and other school staff. For the first time, the potential funding beneficiaries can apply for the Erasmus accreditation. Thanks to this, the awarded organisations gain simplified access to Key Action 1 funding opportunities under the future Programme (2021-2027).

Erasmus accreditation is a tool for education and training organisations in adult education, vocational education and training (VET), and school education that want to open up to cross-border exchange and cooperation. Awarding of the Erasmus accreditation confirms that the applicant has set up a plan to implement high-quality mobility activities as part of a wider effort to develop their organisation.
