ERASMUS PLUS: KEY ACTION 1 – MOBILITY OF INDIVIDUALS
PERIOD: 1 JUNE 2016 – 31 DECEMBER 2017
ERASMUS+ DEADLINE: 02 FEBRUARY 2016
Only one deadline for the whole year.
GUIDELINES FOR TEACHERS
1. Select one of our courses in the period 1 June 2016 – 31 December 2017 from our website.(All of our courses are eligible for Erasmus+ funding.)
Pre-register on the course by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. A place will then be reserved for you on the course until you let us know whether or not you can definitely attend. Some of your colleagues may also wish to apply for the same or a different course.
2. Inform your school or institution that you would like to attend a course in the UK with Erasmus+ funding. (Individual teachers cannot apply for funding.) A representative of your school or college will need to:
a) Register your school in the Participant Portal in order to obtain a Personal Identification Code (PIC) number for your school. See page 232 of the Erasmus+ Programme Guide:
The link for the PIC application form is https://www.erasmusplus.org.uk/how-to-apply
and also for the following two forms which must be signed by the principal of your school and submitted at the same time:
Legal Entity Form:
Financial Identification Form:
b) By 1 FEBRUARY 2016 submit an online application.
You will need to download and use the application form on your Erasmus+ National Agency’s website. It is recommended to quote the specific course title and course provider (PIC 931154508).
Take particular note of pages 61-67 of the Erasmus+ Programme Guide http://ec.europa.eu/programmes/erasmus-plus/documents/erasmus-plus-programme-guide_en.pdf
Your school (or college) will need to include in the application a European Development Plan for the school (which could focus on the improvement of language teaching in the school or on CLIL for example). There needs to be a clear link between your (and your colleagues’) attendance at a course in the UK and your school’s European Development Plan. It is also important to indicate that the teaching ideas and materials acquired on the course will not only be used to enhance your own lessons, but will also be disseminated to your colleagues at a workshop which you will conduct after your course, so that a large number of students will benefit.
