Training Opportunities

Did you know you can use Erasmus+ funding to take part in all sorts of training events that can help you prepare for, apply for and run Youth in Action projects?

The training is delivered through Transnational Cooperation Activities (TCAs for short!) and each year, the Léargas Youth and Adult Education team agrees a schedule of funded TCAs/training events that can be attended by those in the youth, community and voluntary sectors. These events take place here in Ireland and in other locations throughout Europe. See below for a list of upcoming events.

Registration for Youth TCAs is managed by an organisation called SALTO. To apply to go on a training event, you will need to go to their page. If you’re not already registered with SALTO, don’t worry, registration is free and it’s really quick to do.

If you’ve any questions, contact our Client Services Team.

Upcoming Training

Here are some of the upcoming training events for the youth sector only. (If you’re interested in TCAs in other sectors, click ‘TCAs’ in the Erasmus+ menu). We’ll be updating this regularly, so do check back.
