The European Union awards thousands of grants across Europe for participation in training, but only schools and institutions can apply. However, many colleagues are not informed or unsure about how to apply for a grant in the Erasmus+ programme – that is what this page is for. Here you will find information on how to apply, how to apply and what in-service training is available for German teachers.
Application deadline 2021: 11th May 2021
There will be also an appointment for the accreditation of schools and institutions in autumn. Successful accreditation will simplify the process of applying for grants for further training every year until 2027. Whether and when there will be the possibility to apply for individual projects (duration 6 – 12 months) before then is still unclear.
If you have already received a grant in 2018, 2019 or 2020, you can find suitable training opportunities here.
Apply for training courses
Teachers can no longer apply for funding themselves. In the new programme period 2021 – 2027, funding applications can only be submitted by schools, educational institutions, associations and universities. This means that many individual training courses can be applied for at the same time for one institution.
The following steps must be taken for a successful application:
1) Inform your school or institute leadership about the opportunity to become accredited for annual scholarship benefits until 2027.
2) Make your leadership aware of the new opportunities.
3) Register your school/institution with the EU – we’ll show you how.
