Erasmus Plus Key Action (KA1) – Learning Mobility of Individuals
The Erasmus Plus KA1 Learning Mobility programme provides an excellent opportunity for all to participate in transnational mobility courses in different European countries. It is important to know that your organization can apply for multiple places at the same training course. Funding can be obtained from the Erasmus+ programme, which (at least for our training courses) covers ALL of the necessary costs such as traveling, accommodation, daily expenses and tuition fee.
It is important to identify your organisation’s needs in terms of quality development and internationalization, as well as your plans for improvement. You have to identify the main areas for improvement (for example management competences, staff competences, new teaching methods or tools, European dimension, language competences, curriculum, the organisation of teaching and learning). All the above will help you to fill in the application form which can be found at your National Agency or at the official website of Erasmus+
According to the needs of your organization you will select the course that will assist your staff to acquire the appropriate competences and skills for quality improvement. Our team has prepared a challenging list of courses which is constantly updated and enriched.The areas covered are: European Issues, Information Technology, Health Education, Special Education and Teacher Education. Please inform us about your choice and reserve your place now. Your participation can be confirmed once you get a positive reply by your National Agency.
You will find your National Agency here: http://ec.europa.eu/education/tools/national_agencies_en.htm.
Your National Agency can provide you with information in your language. In most cases National Agencies will have helpful instructions for participating in ERASMUS+ on their website. You will also have to submit your application to your National Agency.
At this stage you have to download the application from your National Agency website and prepare a proposal under the Key Action 1 – Learning Mobility of Individuals. If this is the first time you preparing a proposal and filling up an application form, it can take a bit of time to familiarize yourself with its format, the terms used and the procedure. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE DEADLINE FOR THE SUBMISSION OF PROPOSALS FOR STAFF MOBILITY IS THE χTH OF MARCH 201Χ. If your organization does not apply, you’ll have to wait until next year for grant approval. In case you need any help get in touch with the “Emphasys Team” (firstname.lastname@example.org) or on Skype (emphasys.centre).
It is essential for all organisations that apply for ERASMUS+ funding to obtain a Personal Identification Code (PIC). Thus you have to register in the EU Participant Portal to get it. You can apply here: European Commission Authentication Service.
The video instructions at the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1jkLGRAEaDo#t=57 will help you with your registration. Alternatively, check for instructions on your National Agency’s website.
All application forms will be obtained by your National Agency. Please make sure that the completed e-form is for KA1 – Learning Mobility. There are several forms, so make sure that you select the appropriate one for your organisation and status (e.g. learning mobility for staff-school education). Please note that the application has to be filled out by the school, not by individual teachers according to the European Development Plan. Each school can apply for more than one teacher for the project plan of 1 or 2 years. There is no need to specify the training dates at this stage. If you need help do not hesitate to contact us.
Once your proposal has been submitted you have to wait for the results of your National Agency. Each country announces the results at different times, but it is expected that by the end of June 2018 all results for KA1 will be announced.
If you are in a creative mood, there is time to explore the possibility of participating in a KA2 - Strategic Partnership proposal in the field of education, training and youth. The "Emphasys Team" can assist you with this idea. Check our website www.emphasyscentre.com, our Facebook Page or send us an email with your interests, needs and challenges at email@example.com
When you receive positive feedback from your agency, please let us know so we can confirm your participation at your chosen course, country and date. The “Emphasys Team” is available to organize the practicalities of your learning experience in the countries where the courses are offered. So there is nothing to worry about accommodation, travelling, events, activities and cultural trips.
