PERSONALIZED EDUCATIONAL VISITS TO SCHOOLS

WORKING TOGETHER BY PRIORITIES AND TOPICS.

 

Erasmus+ Programme is a real European success story, consistently identified as one of the most successful initiatives of the EU. Since its inception in 1987, the programme has expanded considerably. It now covers all education and training sectors ranging from early childhood education and care, and school education to vocational education and training, higher education and adult learning. The new programme 2021-2027 will not only be more inclusive and innovative but also more digital and greener. It will be key to achieving the European Education Area by 2025 and will mobilise the education, training, youth and sport sectors for swift recovery and future growth. It will provide many new opportunities for Europe's learners. With increased accessibility and more flexible mobility formats, it will provide opportunities to a more diverse group of learners, including those with fewer opportunities and school pupils, who are now included in the mobility action. Non-native English trainers expecting participants to have at least B1 level of English proficiency.

 

You will learn everything about the funding available at Erasmus + Projects, acquiring concrete skills related to the design and manage a SUCCESSFUL PROJECT AND ACCREDITATION, the key words to write the form and manage the project once approved. A practical simulation is carried out for each topic in focus during the European Project Design. Besides, teachers will give key knowledge pills every day and motivation activities to participants to put them in action so they can face to write a proposal with success.

METHODOLOGY

The course is based on theoretical lessons and presentations of examples of good practice as well as discussions and experience comparisons. The course will have lectures, seminars and workshops to ensure full comprehension and every day assingnment support. Every day will add new information about Key Action Erasmus Plus and will create new links to strenghten future common projects. During the middle of the week all participants will have educational visits to other schools to know in person how other schools work.

 

Our experienced trainers will support and stimulate the networking and cooperation among participants. We organize networking, cultural, sport and historical activities in order to give participants the opportunity to exchange best-practices and establish professional cooperation and links. These activities are a very good example of how to organise activities in a possible common future KA2 project. In these activities will take part not only participants of the course but also other participant from differents courses attended by the company. The expected training activity has been structured so that the participants can transfer know-how and develop needed skills to create and manage a proposal with real success.

 

By the end of the course, participants should have an assested proposal for international collaboration action of a partnership project. To ensure that, participants will work on a real application form in order to acquire concrete skills on how to design and apply for a EU-funded project. Furthermore, trainers will make extensive use of evidence-based examples and experiences. In the end of the course, the company will provide the participants an attendance certificate including the detailed information about the course, e.g. title, programme and schedule. In addition, a Europass Mobility Certificate can be added on request.

COMMENTS FROM

SCHOOL EDUCATION GATEWAY

It was a course with a good organization and where a pleasant work environment was breathed. The spaces chosen to develop the sessions were optimal and very adequate. In short, a good training to share with classmates and with an immediate impact on the educational community.
