Can I get a grant?

Funding is available for schools and colleges that provide general, vocational, or technical education at any level, from pre-school to upper secondary education, or for a VET organisation or an adult education organisation.

Participants can be teachers, trainers, headmasters, school and education managers, administrators, educational counsellors, career counsellors, other school staff, other adult education staff, other higher education staff, other non-governmental organisation staff, public servants and/or policy makers. All participants are in a working relationship with the sending school organisation.

Schools in Member States of the European Union can fully take part in every aspect of the Erasmus+ Programme. Some restrictions apply to Non-EU countries. More information on eligibility is available on the official Erasmus+ Programme Guide.

How can my organisation apply for EU grant?

Only organisations can apply, not individuals.

Before starting, we just want to remind you of the deadline. For Erasmus+ KA1 projects deadline, the deadline is only once per year.

Applicants must submit their grant application by February for projects starting between June and December of the same year. Once this deadline has passed, you will have to wait until the following year to apply.

The next deadline is February 2021.

The Erasmus+ application process can seem confusing if you have no prior experience with EU proposals. Here you can find a 6 Step Guide to Fund your Teacher Training Course.

1. Idea: Assess the specific needs of your teachers and organisation. Why do you need this project?

2. Course: Choose the best training courses for your team.

3. EU login – OID number: To apply for Erasmus+ KA1 grant, you must first register your School/VET/Adult Education Centre in EU Login (formerly ECAS) in order to obtain a unique Organisation ID (OID). Please note that the Organisation ID has replaced the PIC as the unique identifier for the organisation to apply for Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps actions managed by National Agencies. Organisations that have a PIC and have previously applied for funding in these programmes through the National Agencies have been assigned an Organisation ID automatically.

4. Fill in the form and submit : Download your application form from the National Agency website and prepare a proposal under the Key Action 1 (KA1) – Learning Mobility of Individuals. Submit your grant application by February for projects starting between June and December of the same year.

5. Receive support : First of all, ask your National Agency! If you have any doubt or need information, contact them first as they will be able to provide country-specific information: make sure you contact the right National Agency relevant to your education field (either School Education, VET or Adult Education). Once you have received the support and information from your National Agency, Teachersrise will be able to provide further support for those completing the application process and give you useful tips for your application success. To access this assistance from Teachersrise, fill in the “Request for assistance” form.

6. Success : Most eligible countries publish their results in the late spring/early summer, but some National Agencies might publish results later. When you receive the results from your National Agency, please fill out the registration form and we will contact you to confirm your arrangements and send you confirmation for the course (if still available). Once the course is officially confirmed, you can book your flights. We will then send you the accommodation form, which will include your accommodation preferences, special dietary requirements, time of arrival and emergency contact details.
