Through Erasmus+, UK schools can access funding:
- pupils can take part in international exchanges and study experiences
- staff can teach, train or job shadow abroad
- schools can collaborate with international partners
Funding is open to UK schools and colleges providing education to pupils aged 3 – 18 years. Local authorities and school consortia can also apply.
Funding applications must be made under one of the Erasmus+ Key Actions. These are:
- Key Action 1: Mobility of Individuals
- Key Action 2: Cooperation for Innovation and Exchange of Good Practices
- Key Action 3: Support for Policy Reform
Full information on what falls under each of these Actions is available on the Erasmus+ website.
