Erasmus+ funding opportunities

  • One of the aim of this project was to help teachers and schools to find partners to work with in Europe. 

    Erasmus+ funding provides the opportunity for teachers and pupils to visit other schools in Europe.  Here are some tips about how to apply.  But please also check with your local Erasmus+ agency.  The deadline on 2 February 2017 is very strict - make sure you know what it is for your time zone.
