Did you know that Erasmus+ can fund you to take part in training events that help you prepare, apply for and run Youth in Action projects? These events are managed by an organisation called SALTO. Each year Léargas chooses a number of particularly relevant training events that people working in the Irish youth sector can be funded to attend.
To apply to go to a training event, click on the SALTO link after the listing. You will need a SALTO account to see the details. If you don’t have one, follow the on-screen instructions to set one up. Léargas will then get in touch with you to let you know if your application has been successful.
Here are the upcoming training events for the youth sector only. Check here for TCA opportunities in other sectors.
