Mobility for adult education staff (Key Action 1)

Under Key Action 1 organisations involved in adult education can apply for funding to offer their staff in charge of adult education opportunities to carry out staff training or carry out teaching/training assignments. Staff can benefit from increased professional and career development through structured courses and training events, job shadowing and observations.
