Erasmus+ 2021-2027

Erasmus+ is the European Union programme for education, training, youth and sport. It provides funding and support for organisations to carry out projects that match its objectives, and that encourage European exchange, co-operation and learning.

Erasmus+ Opportunities for VET Staff and Learners

Teachers, trainers and VET staff can travel to another country for job shadowing, teaching and training; VET learners can travel for work placements and take part in skills competitions. This is a 'Mobility Project', part of Erasmus+ Key Action 1. VET organisations can collaborate with other relevant organisations to achieve a shared goal or share good practices. These are 'Cooperation Partnerships', part of Erasmus+ Key Action 2. Teachers, trainers and others involved in VET can take part in short Training courses and Cooperation Activities, both in Ireland and in other countries. Many are open to newcomers, so you do not need to be part of an existing Erasmus+ project.

eTwinning

VET professionals can look for project partners on eTwinning. eTwinning connects schools through a secure, online platform.  Teachers and pupils can work together with peers across Europe on joint projects.  Funded CPD courses for teachers are also available.

Languages

VET initiatives that teach or celebrate languages in innovative ways can apply for the European Language Label award. VET professionals may take part in relevant language workshops at the European Centre for Modern Languages. Teachers can request free materials to celebrate the European Day of Languages on 26 September.
