Transcript of Erasmus+ for Schools

Finansiering af forskning og innovation, der kan omsættes til produkter og tjenester, der skaber vækst
More resources (ca. 14,7 bill. €)

Simplified structure and procedures

Possible to work cross-sectoral

Larger and more comprehensive applications - but fewer of them
2014 - 2020
focus on key policy priorities
strengthen the impact
It will be easier
There will be more funding
There will be fewer actions

Mobility for learners and staff: opportunities for students, trainees, volunteers, young people, as well as for teachers, professors, trainers, youth workers, staff of education institutions and civil society organisations to undertake a learning and/or civic experience in another country;

Transnational Strategic Partnerships aimed at developing initiatives addressing one or more fields of education training and youth and promoting innovation, exchange of experience and know-how between different types of organisations involved in education, training and youth or in other relevant fields. Certain mobility activities are supported in so far as they contribute to the objectives of the project;
The partnership can last for 2 or 3 years
Key Action 3, (4.2 % of budget)
Support to policy reforms

aims at achieving the goals in EU 2020 strategy and the european Yuoth strategy ▌
Key Action 1 (63% of budget)
mobility of individuals
Key Action 2 (28% of budget)
The strategic partnership
3 actions
training activities and teaching abroad
For Schools 3 types of partnerships:

A cross-sectoral partnership
A pure good old fashioned partnership btw. 2 or more schools - and only schools
Regio partnership - btw. 2 OR more regions

Apply in Brussels
Individual mobility in E+ requires a Developmentplan
This European Development Plan should provide information on

Ask not what Erasmus+ can do for you, ask what Erasmus+ can do for your school
Guide for experts
Activities within the frame of a school partnership

Short term exchanges of pupils

Individual pupil mobility (long term)

Teachers from the partnership on job shadowing, joint staff trainings (both short and long)


Intellectual output (eg. learning materials and pedagogical material)

Multiplier event (dissemination of above mentioned output)

How is a Scool partnership financed?
Project management and implentation
500 euro per month for the coordinating school
250 euro pr per month for partner schools

Transantional project meetings (meetings necessary to prepare and carry out the partnership
Scale of unit cost per participant,
from 100 to 1.999 km = 575 euro per pax per meeting
from 2.000 km = 760 euro per pax per meeting
To a combined maximum of 23.000 euro per year

Intellectual output, eg. learning materials, pedagogical materials etc.
Unit cost per pax - different rate per type of pax
The output should be substantial in quality and quantity

Multiplier events(only if intellectual output has been planned and only for pax outside the partnership)
Scale of unit costs (max 30.000 euro)
Local pax = 100 euro per pax
International pax = 200 euro per pax

Transnationational learning/teaching/training activities
The actual mobilities of learners(and teachers)
Scale of unit cost. Different rates for different activities and destinations
Grants for both travel, subsistence and linguistic support

Exceptional cost and cost for special needs (based on real cost)
the needs of your school in terms of quality development and internationalization (e.g. as regards management competences, staff competences, new teaching methods or tools, European dimension, language competences, curriculum, organization of teaching and learning, reinforcing links with partner institutions) and how the planned activities will contribute to meeting these needs;
- the impact expected on your pupils, teachers and other staff, and on the school overall;

- on how your school will integrate the competences and experiences your staff will acquire through their mobilities into the curriculum and/or the school development plan
if and how you intend to use eTwinning in connection with the planned mobility activities.
European Development Plan
Possible issues to reflect upon
What are the organisation's needs in terms of quality development and internationalisation? Please identify the main areas for improvement.
Please outline the organisation's plans for European mobility and cooperation activities, and explain how these activities will contribute to meeting the identified needs
Please explain how your organisation will integrate the competences and experiences acquired by staff participating in the project, into its strategic development in the future?
Regio Partnerships promote cooperation between local and regional authorities with a role in education in order to improve the quality of school education in the partner regions.
Each project has to involve at least two regions from different countries, and each region has to involve at least three partners locally – the local/regional authority, a school and one other relevant organisation from the community.
School partnerships
Some partnerships in the school education sector involve only schools. They offer the opportunity to strengthen the internationalisation of schools through fine-tuned projects, which allow the involvement of staff and pupils in collaborative learning activities, and also set the framework for learning/training mobility of pupils and staff. For such partnerships some specific rules apply. In particular, partnerships involving only schools have a special selection and contracting procedure. This allows them to develop international projects where the requirements for project management are adapted to the specific situation of schools.
How is the application process?
Apply online
Coordinator submits electronically to own NA on behalf of the entire partnership
No more paper versions of the application to sign and submit to your NA
The partnership as a whole is either funded or not
No amputated partnerships

However - NAs are allowed to adjust the grant, if assessors find that the project can bear a smaller grant
For partnerships containing only schools:
Each school signs a contract with own NA
Each school is funded directly by its own NA
For all other partnerships
The coordinating organization
receives all funding for the entire
partnership from its NA. It is the responsibility of the coordinating organization to manage the funding
So-called split funding
So-called one-sided funding
"..any type of organisation active in any field of education, training and youth or other socio-economic sectors as well as to organisations that are transversal to different fields (e.g. local and regional authorities, recognition and validation centres, chambers of commerce, trade organisations, guidance centres, cultural organisations)" and must consist of min 3 partners from min 3 countries.
is possible for:
A partnership in the school education field must always address school education. However, it may also address other sectors or fields of education, training and youth work.
Cross-sectoral partnerships promote the participation of a variety of stakeholders with different profiles, from different fields of education, or outside the education field.
No maximum or minimum of mobilities as such


A partnership can never receive more than 450.000 euro for a 3-year partnership.
