What is it for?
Erasmus+ aims to improve the quality of teaching and learning from pre-primary through to secondary level in schools across Europe.
It will provide opportunities for people working in school education to develop their professional skills and to work together with partners in Europe. Activities support the sharing of good practice and testing of innovative approaches that address shared challenges, such as early school leaving or poor levels of basic skills. Activities can foster links with the world outside school and other fields of education and training.
What does it involve?
Opportunities for staff to undertake European professional development activities abroad, including:
• Structured courses or training;
• Teaching assignments;
• Job shadowing or observations.
Cooperation between schools or other organisations:
• Establish international strategic partnerships to co-operate on issues of shared interest.

• Schools (pre-primary through to secondary level);
