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.

We're busy researching and working with our European colleagues to plan training opportunities for the Youth sector in 2018/19. We need your insight to inform this process so that the training opportunities offered will respond to your needs. We want to hear what kinds of themes are emerging from your work with young people? What kinds of methodologies/tools would you like to develop to enhance your practice? Do you know how to find partners? What kind of training would support your capacity to develop Erasmus+ opportunities in the Youth sector?

Please take 10-15 minutes of your time to respond to our survey. Your insight and input will play an invaluable role in shaping Youth training opportunities over the next couple of years.
