The Erasmus programme is mostly known for making possible student mobility in the countries that have affiliated to it. Since the Erasmus+ programme creation in 2014, every individual can benefit from the programme according to their status and only if their institution has an Erasmus+ partnership. As a teacher; you also have the right to use the Erasmus+ scholarship for a mobility trip so you can start teaching abroad.
Going on an Erasmus+ mobility trip
Do you want to enrich your experience and your knowledge? You should definitely go on an Erasmus+ mobility trip. This way, you will be able to enrich the professional experience of another teacher and of another country.
Your mobility can be done in a company, a public institution, a social partnership, a research institution or a non-governmental organisation.
Your experience will be profitable for you but also for your school because you will preach teaching mobility for new teachers and apprentices. Your experience will be fulfilling because you will be able to discover a new working environment abroad. Indeed, this will allow you to reconsider your teaching methods and challenge yourself to always give your best to the students.
The Erasmus+ mobility trip will enrich your professional practices and will allow you to create networks and multiple collaborations in Europe.
