UK adult education organisations can apply for staff mobility funding under Key Action 1.
This part of Key Action 1 is managed in the UK by Ecorys UK as part of the UK National Agency.
What mobility activities are possible?
A project can last either one or two years, and adult education organisations can apply for funding to support any of the following mobility activities within the project:
- Teaching/ training assignments – allows staff from adult education organisations to teach or provide training at a partner organisation abroad.
- Staff training – staff participate in structured courses or training events abroad, job shadowing/observation periods in any relevant organisation active in the adult education field.
Funding can be used to support staff on activities in another programme country, lasting from two days to two months (excluding travel time).
Who can apply?
Any adult education organisation sending their staff abroad, or any adult education organisation acting as coordinator of a national mobility consortium of adult education organisations, can apply for funding. Please read the Erasmus+ Programme Guide for full eligibility criteria.
Please note that each organisation can only apply for one Key Action 1 adult education project per Call unless the organisation is involved in a consortium, when it could apply more than once. A consortium application must consist of at least three adult education organisations from the same programme country.
Individuals cannot apply directly for Erasmus+ adult education funding.
