EU programme for education, training, youth and sport
Erasmus+ is the European Union programme for education, training, youth and sport, running from 2021 to 2027. It has a budget of €26.2 billion for all of Europe, to fund learning mobility and cross-border cooperation projects for ten million Europeans of all ages and all backgrounds.
If you belong to an organisation active in Adult Education, School Education, Vocational Education and Training, or Youth, you can apply for funding to carry out projects consistent with the Erasmus Programme’s objectives.
What are the Erasmus+ Programme objectives?
- Support through lifelong learning for the educational, professional and personal development of people in education, training and youth, in Europe and beyond.
- Build a European Education Area to support European strategic cooperation in education and training, and in advancing youth policy cooperation under the Youth Strategy 2019 to 2027.
- Promote Learning Mobility in Education and Training for staff, pupils and learners, along with cooperation, quality, inclusion and equity, excellence, creativity and innovation.
- Promote Learning Mobility in Youth to support young people, youth workers and organisations to actively participate in non-formal and informal learning mobility.

Erasmus+ Key Priorities
The Erasmus+ Programme has 4 key Priorities which support the programme’s objectives.
- Inclusion and Diversity
This priority promotes equal opportunities and access, inclusion, diversity and fairness across all areas, with focus on organisations and participants with fewer opportunities.
The Inclusion and Diversity Strategy aims to address the barriers different groups face when accessing opportunities in Europe and beyond.
- Digital Transformation
This priority aims to engage learners, educators, youth workers, young people and organisations in the path to digital transformation.
- Environment and the Fight Against Climate Change
This priority recognises the key role of schools to engage with pupils, parents, and the wider community on the changes we need for Europe to become ‘climate neutral’ by 2050.
- Participation in Democratic Life
This priority supports people to become actively engaged with their communities and with political and social life.
These four key priorities are informed by the fundamental rights of the individual and the evolving needs of the global community.
All Erasmus+ opportunities provided by ATC Language School connect with one or more of these key priorities.
Erasmus+ Key Actions
Key Actions is the collective name for activities and projects that can be funded under Erasmus+.
Here at ATC Language Schools, we offer opportunities for
Key Actions 1 Mobility of Individuals
Key Action 2 Cooperation among organisations and institutions.
KA 1 Mobility of Individuals
This Key Action supports Mobility of learners and staff. A ‘Mobility’ project is where a school or an organisation in the field of school education sends its pupils or staff to another country to train, learn, go on a teaching assignment, or job-shadow. The school or organisation applies to their National Agency for funding to prepare and manage the project, and for the costs of travel and participation.
Find your National Agency here: http://ec.europa.eu/programmes/erasmus-plus/contact

These courses, held by wonderful training experts, have been the perfect balance between theory and practice with the trainees performing in the workshop as both teachers and students, but the added value to all the practice was the conclusion, with a real STEAM lesson engaging students from our school.
I’m a novice teacher of English, so this experience was even more valuable for me and I recommend this school for those who want to improve their knowledge of the English language and spend their time in a most productive way.
