KA1 Mobility project for school education staff
This mobility project can comprise one or more of the following activities:
- Teaching Assignments: this activity allows teachers or other school education staff to teach at a partner school abroad;
- Structured Courses or Training Events Abroad: support the professional development of teachers, school leaders or other educational staff;
- Job Shadowing: provides an opportunity for teachers, school leaders or other school staff to spend a period abroad in a partner school or another relevant organisation active in the field of school education.
These activities are also an opportunity for teachers to gain competences in addressing the needs of pupils with disadvantaged backgrounds. Given the current context concerning young migrants, refugees and asylum seekers, particular attention will be also given to support projects that train teachers in such areas as training refugee children, intercultural classrooms, teaching pupils in their second language, classroom tolerance and diversity.
What is the role of organisations participating in this project?
Participating organisations involved in the mobility project assume the following roles and tasks:
- Applicant organisation: in charge of applying for the mobility project, signing and managing the grant agreement and reporting. If the applicant organisation is a school, it also acts as sending organisation. The applicant can be a consortium coordinator: leading a national mobility consortium of partner organisations of the same country aimed at sending school education staff to activities abroad.
- Sending organisation: in charge of selecting teachers and other school education staff and sending them abroad.
- Receiving organisation: in charge of receiving teachers and other school education staff and offering them a programme of activities, or benefiting from a teaching activity provided by them.
Erasmus+ supports learning mobility of staff that:
- is framed within a European Development Plan for the sending organisation (aimed at modernising and internationalising their mission);
- responds to clearly identified staff development needs;
- is accompanied by appropriate selection, preparation and follow-up measures;
- ensures that the learning outcomes of participating staff are properly recognised;
- ensures that the learning outcomes are disseminated and widely used within the organisation.
