What is Erasmus + ? Will this support mobility staff training programmes abroad?
The Erasmus + programme will replace the EU LLP programme and will run from 2014 -2020. The programme will continue to support and offer grants for Comenius and Grundtvig staff mobility training for staff, teachers and professionals in the education sector.
Heads of Schools will be able to organise several mobility activities, allowing many individuals ( staff) to attend Mobility Training courses abroad over a period of one or two years through one grant application.
