Funding details

Organisations of course participants can apply funding for the training costs from the Erasmus+ program 2014-2020. Erasmus+ funding is available for the Mobility for adult education staff (includes staff training). This activity supports the professional development of adult education staff in the form of: a) participation in structured courses or training events abroad; b) a job shadowing/observation period abroad in any relevant organisation active in the adult education field. Please note that in the new Erasmus+ program the funding applications are made by the organisations, not the staff persons by themselves.

First application deadline for Erasmus+ and Mobility for adult education staff is extended to 24.3.2014. Please ask more funding information from your national Erasmus+ agency: http://ec.europa.eu/education/lifelong-learning-programme/national_en.htm
