About

About

Transnational Cooperation Activities (TCAs) are events arranged by National Agencies to encourage collaboration and sharing of best practice within Erasmus+. They can be training and support events aimed at National Agency staff and project coordinators; contact seminars to find project partners; or thematic seminars addressing specific topics in education, training and youth work. TCAs in the youth field are organised through the SALTO (Support, Advanced Learning and Training Opportunities) network; you can find out more about them here. TCAs in other fields are arranged by National Agencies themselves, and opportunities to attend are announced here.

Funding
TCA costs vary according to the venue and programme involved. In general, participants in TCAs organised through SALTO receive a 70% reimbursement of their travel costs from Léargas. Participants in TCAs organised directly by other National Agencies are asked to contribute €50 towards the costs agreed with Léargas (usually travel, event fee and accommodation).

Benefits
Taking part in a TCA allows organisations to expand their base of knowledge, extend their network of contacts, and increase the impact of their own work through sharing of information.

Many thanks to everyone who took part in our #VETskillsPhoto2017 Photo Competition! For our first day of #EUVocationalSkills Week we are delighted to feature the Beauty Therapy students of Longford College of Further Education.

" I decided to do the nail course that the college offered as I know Gel Nails are so popular, and I wanted to learn how to do them. One day I plan to open my own salon and know that the more courses I do and the more skills I learn the more I can offer my clients" - Lucia
