Erasmus+ The EU programme for Education, Training, Youth, and Sport for 2014-2020 .
The Erasmus+ programme aims to boost skills and employability, as well as modernising Education, Training, and Youth work.
The seven year programme will have a budget of €14.7 billion; a 40% increase compared to current spending levels, reflecting the EU's commitment to investing in these areas.
★ Erasmus+ will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain work experience and volunteer abroad.
Erasmus+ will support transnational partnerships among
Education, Training, and Youth institutions and organisations to foster cooperation and bridge the worlds of Education and work in order to tackle the skills gaps we are facing in Europe.
It will also support national efforts to modernise Education, Training, and Youth systems.
In the field of Sport, there will be support for grassroots projects and cross-border challenges such as combating match-fixing, doping, violence and racism.
Erasmus+ brings together seven existing EU programmes in the fields of Education, Training, and Youth; it will for the first time provide support for Sport.
As an integrated programme, Erasmus+ offers more opportunities for cooperation across the Education, Training, Youth and Sport sectors and is easier to access than its predecessors, with simplified funding rules.
Main purpose: ★ Developing cross-cultural references and getting abilities to communicate over categorization. ★ Cooperation in order to achieve innovation and inter-exchange of good practise.
eTwinning: connecting European schools Through eTwinning, classrooms across Europe can work together on projects by connecting with each other through an online platform. Supported by € 11 million per year from the Erasmus+ programme, eTwinning is helping pupils develop new skills and competences and supporting teachers in their professional development.
eTwinning: connecting European schools Working on projects like the Big Lie, which analysed media messages in different countries, school children learn to understand different perspectives and develop skills. In 10 years, eTwinning has already connected more than half of schools in Europe and involved nearly 2 million pupils and more than 300.000 teachers.
First students’ impressions: I’ve met dozen or so of inspiring, talented and unique people from 3 countries. We had different opinions, experiences, cultures but we broke every barrier.
The world is broad and wide, like William Shakespeare once wrote. We, the youth of today need to prepare ourselves to live together, despite the differences in nationalities, races or spoken languages. Live, work and find the way to understand each other. We’re all equal.
