What can we do? Overview about eligible project activities and funding
Under Key Action 1 organisations can apply for funding to run mobility projects for their learners or staff members.
If you plan to organise mobility activities on a regular basis, you should first apply for accreditation to gain then simplified access to Key Action 1 funding opportunities. The accreditation is valid for the whole programme generation and in your Erasmus plan you define your concrete plans and objectives.
If you are trying Erasmus+ for the first time or if you plan to organise only a limited number of activities, then you can also think about applying for a short-term project. With this kind of project you can organise various mobility activities over a period of six to eighteen months.
The concrete possibilities for both depend on the target group:
Staff means teachers, trainers, mobility officers or non-teaching experts and staff working in initial or continuing vocational education and training, e.g. management staff, counsellors etc. Participants must be working in the sending organisation, or must be regularly working with
the sending organisation to help implement the organisation’s core activities (for example as external and in-company trainers, experts, or volunteers).
They can be sent abroad to teach, train, or be trained at a school or other organisation:
- Job shadowing (2 to 60 days) to learn new practices and gather new ideas through observation and interaction with peers, experts or other practitioners in their daily work
- Teaching or training assignments (2 to 365 days) to provide learning contents and learn through completing these tasks and exchanging with peers
- Courses and training (2 to 30 days, maximum 10 days of course fees per participant) to learn from qualified professionals based on a pre-defined learning programme
and learning outcome. There need to be participants from at least two countries.
Other options are the invitation of experts, to host teachers/educators and preparatory visits.
Experts for example can be invited from 2 – 60 days with the aim to improve the teaching, training and learning at the receiving organisation.
Especially interesting can be preparatory visits to find reliable partners and arrange e.g. the details of a learner mobility. Up to three staff members from the sending organisation can get 575 EUR funding for travel and subsistence.
Funding depends on three factors: the target group, the country of origin and the country of destination as well as the duration.
It includes amounts for:
- Organisational support
- Travel costs based on the distance
- Individual support based on country and duration
- Inclusion support
- Linguistic support
- Exceptional costs e.g. for expensive travels, visa, medical certifications…
- Course fees
- Costs for preparatory visits
In the next chapter of this course, we give more information on the funding details.
