Erasmus+ Programme Guide 2021 !!!!!
This document is mainly addressed to those who wish to be:
-participating organisations: meaning those organisations, institutions, bodies organising activities supported by the Programme;
-participants: meaning those individuals (students, trainees, apprentices, pupils, adult learners, young people, volunteers, or professors, teachers, trainers, youth workers, professionals in the field of education, training, youth and sport, etc.) involved in activities organised by the participating organisations.
Erasmus+ Teacher Academies
Teachers and school leaders are the cornerstone of education. The Erasmus programme (2021–2027) introduces a new action, Erasmus+ Teacher Academies, to support cooperation between initial and continued teacher education providers.
The European Education Area is a broad initiative of the European Commission to help all learners in Europe develop their skills throughout their lives, study abroad and get their learning recognised. The Erasmus+ programme (2021–2027) will help to make this a reality.
The Erasmus+ Teacher Academies will support teacher education institutions (universities, teacher training colleges, course providers) in developing the European dimension of their learning offer and enhancing cross-border collaboration. They will create projects that aim to improve the quality of initial teacher education – the support for teachers in their early years in the profession – and they will explore effective ways to keep teachers’ professional competences developing throughout their careers.
The Academies will support the development of innovative practices, such as the effective use of digital tools for online learning, education for a sustainable environment, teaching in multilingual classrooms, or creating inclusive schools. Moreover, they will help teachers learn by attending joint courses, modules or mobility opportunities, and by learning with peers in professional communities.
Course participants (student teachers, teachers and school leaders) will benefit from professional learning opportunities that are quality-assured, recognised and tailored to meet their needs. Participation will give teachers a European perspective on the profession, language learning opportunities, and valuable intercultural experience.
The new Erasmus Programme 2021-2027 Main features
Erasmus+ 2021-2027 will be much more inclusive by offering access to learners in higher or general education, vocational education or training, adult education, non-formal learning, youth, and active participation activities. It will also facilitate the participation of small scale and grassroots organisations, and people with fewer opportunities, including people with disabilities and migrants, as well as EU citizens living in remote areas. The inclusiveness of the programme is also strengthened by the provisions on virtual learning and measures such as language support, preparatory visits, training and virtual cooperation for people who are unable to participate in learning mobility in the field of education and training, youth and sport
The main specific objectives of the Erasmus+ programme are the following:
promote learning mobility of individuals and groups in the field of education and training
promote non-formal and informal learning mobility and active participation among young people in the field of youth
promote learning mobility of sport staff
Erasmus Accreditation- 2021-2027
Every year, the European Union funds thousands of mobilities and professional development activities for teachers and other school staff. For the first time, the potential funding beneficiaries can apply for the Erasmus accreditation. Thanks to this, the awarded organisations gain simplified access to Key Action 1 funding opportunities under the future Programme (2021-2027).
Erasmus accreditation is a tool for education and training organisations in adult education, vocational education and training (VET), and school education that want to open up to cross-border exchange and cooperation. Awarding of the Erasmus accreditation confirms that the applicant has set up a plan to implement high-quality mobility activities as part of a wider effort to develop their organisation.
Coronavirus impact - Erasmus Plus
The COVID-19 outbreak negatively affects the carrying out of the many activities, which are ongoing or were planned, under the Erasmus+ programme and European Solidarity Corps.
The European Commission’s main objective is the safety and protection of all Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps participants, while fully respecting all the containment measures taken at national level. The European Commission is working to help beneficiaries and students, pupils, volunteers and other participants in the programmes deal with the consequences for them.
The Commission will continue to adapt its response to this unprecedented situation as it evolves, clarifying and simplifying the application or rules and procedures where necessary in cooperation with Erasmus+ National Agencies and the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA).

Opportunities under Erasmus Plus KA1 2021-2027
Teachers and all staff in charge of school education in primary schools, secondary school and higher education (also vocational education and training, schools for adult education and youths) can apply for funding to run mobility projects to offer training and/or teaching opportunities to staff and learners.
Also, local/regional authorities (local or regional authorities with school education responsibilities) are eligible to apply for funding.
Two main activities can be developed under Erasmus KA1:
– A Single Project Application: each school can apply for mobility funds every year, for projects that last 1 or 2 years. The application deadline is usually between February and March every year.
– Erasmus Accreditation: each school, or a consortium of schools, can apply to get accredited for the entire duration of the new Erasmus Program. Accredited organizations will have a facilitated access to mobility funds, year after year, by presenting just a budget request in line with the school development plan outlined in the Accreditation application.
