Recently I was “fighting“ with an Adult Education Staff Mobility project, so I have decided to write something more about it, to let you know what it is, which activities are covered and how to apply.
Adult Education Staff Mobility is a mobility under the Erasmus+ programme KA1.
This kind of mobility usually means you spend time abroad. Mobility projects can cover one or more of the following: study courses, observation, job shadowing, training, and teaching. Overall, projects last from between one to two years, but for individuals or groups of staff this can mean activity for as little as two days or up to two months in duration.
Mobility projects are transnational, and so all project activity except structured courses or training events must involve at least two schools – your own school and the partner school(s) abroad.
To successfully apply for funding for a Key Action 1 mobility project a school should be aiming to support the professional development of some or all of the school staff, as a part of the school’s European Development Plan.
This mobility project can comprise one or more of the following activities:
Ø teaching/training assignment: this Activity allows staff of adult education organisations to teach or provide training at a partner organisation abroad.
Ø staff training: this Activity supports the professional development of adult education staff in the form of: a) participation in structured courses or training events abroad; b) a job shadowing/observation period abroad in any relevant organisation active in the adult education field.
The deadline for applications for school education staff mobility was 12am on 2 February 2016!
Applications must be made online using the relevant eForm, which you need to download (356 KB) and save to your computer to work on.
