EuroApprentices sought to promote Erasmus+ opportunities

The Erasmus+ UK National Agency is seeking nominations for people to become EuroApprentices, tasked with raising awareness of Erasmus+ opportunities in the vocational education and training (VET) sector.

Applications are welcome from current or former Key Action 1 VET UK beneficiary organisations who would like to put forward one or more of their current or former apprentice participants to take on the role of a EuroApprentice for the UK.

This is a unique opportunity for you to recognise and support those apprentice learners that you believe would seize the opportunity to continue their European experiences, and who could proudly share them with others, representing your organisation and the UK National Agency.

The role of a EuroApprentice is to enhance the visibility of the Erasmus+ programme in their home country and motivate other apprentices, enterprises and VET providers to participate in the programme by sharing their own experience of learning abroad and its benefit for personal and professional development.

Successful nominees would become members of a network of Erasmus+ funded apprentices selected by National Agencies in Austria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany and Italy.

The EuroApprentice will:

  • Be given a National Level Preparation Training (May 2018), hosted by the UK NA in The Midlands;
  • Be funded to attend the EuroApprentices Network Meeting (May 2018), hosted by the Austrian National Agency in Vienna;
  • Be required to complete a range of engagement activities including presenting at events and social media promotion (over the course of 1 year).

Training and support would be provided by the UK National Agency. For more information and details on how to apply see our EuroApprentices Information Sheet (416 KB).

The deadline for applications is 23 April, 5pm (UK time).
