Erasmus+ Staff opportunities to teach or train abroad

Temple Hall

Erasmus+ is the EU programme for education, training, youth and sport. Many of the initiatives are based on opportunities for students, but funding is also available to help teachers, lecturers and non-academic staff develop skills in universities and organisations around Europe – through job shadowing, teaching and training activities.

It’s not only a great way to pick up new ideas and practices from a different education system, but it gives you the chance to build a relationship with that institution. Erasmus+ provides funding for travel and expenses for a minimum of two days and up to a week.
