Deadline: 5 February 2020
The overall programme objectives are to:
- boost skills and employability.
- modernise education, training and youth work.
- focus on young people.
There are two types of learning mobility activities for youth: youth exchanges and training/networking for youth workers. Different activities can be combined into a mobility project, with a UK organisation or group working in partnership with one or more organisations from the Erasmus+ participating countries.
- Youth exchanges
- Youth exchanges allow groups of young people (aged 13 to 30) from different countries to meet and live together for up to 21 days. During a youth exchange, participants work together on a chosen topic through a mix of workshops, exercises, debates, role-plays, simulations, outdoor activities etc. designed and prepared by them before the exchange.
- Training and networking for youth workers
- This activity supports the professional development of youth workers. They can take part in seminars, training courses, networking events, study visits, and job shadowing/observation. A youth worker mobility can last from two days to two months.
UK organisations active in the youth field can participate in a youth mobility project. Informal groups of young people are also eligible to apply for funding under some parts of this Key Action.
Please Note: As a general rule the Erasmus+ programme is open to programme countries which include member states of the European Union as well as non EU programme countries. Other countries can participate in the programme on a limited basis and may participate in certain actions or according to specific conditions, these are known as partner countries.
