Supporting young people to study, work, volunteer, teach and train abroad, and supporting their schools, youth and sports organisations to build transnational partnerships, helps us to create a new generation of globally mobile, culturally agile people who can succeed in an increasingly global marketplace.

How has Erasmus+ shaped your future?

Erasmus exchange fundamentally changed my life, my person, my outlook, my prospects, my future. Everything I did subsequently can be traced back to it.

Alison Pearce, Northumbria University

 

Each year Erasmus+ funds projects which help raise standards in education and training, lead to better job prospects and lower unemployment for participants, and support social mobility and opportunities for all.

We believe that the more experience our chefs can get, the more rounded and valuable to us they become. Our history of working with Erasmus+ has been enormously fruitful.
