ERASMUS+ KA1 Mobility Projects

KA1 Mobility project for school education staff

This mobility project may consist of one or more of the following tasks:

  • Teaching Assignments: This gives teachers or other school education staff the opportunity to teach at a partner school in another country.

  • Structured Courses or Training Events Abroad: Aids the professional advancement of teachers and school leaders, as well as other educational staff.

  • Job shadowing: Gives teachers, school leaders and other school staff the possibility of spending some time abroad in a partner school or appropriate organisation operating in the interest of school education.

Such activities also offer the chance for teachers to educate themselves in focusing on the needs of students from more underprivileged backgrounds. Taking into consideration the current context regarding young migrants, such as refugees and asylum seekers, effort will also be raised to reinforce projects that are to train teachers on issues such as the training of refugee children, multicultural classrooms, teaching children in their second language, classroom tolerance and diversity.

Organisations who participate in this mobility project undertake the following roles and activities:
