Erasmus+ reaching and training Mobility for academic and administrative staff

The Erasmus+ Key Action 1 – Mobility of Individuals provides for academic and administrative staff of higher education institutions to undertake a teaching, learning and/or professional experience in another country.

Teaching mobility allows teaching staff to teach at a partner university abroad. Staff mobility for teaching can be in any subject area/academic discipline. It is possible to participate in training periods for teaching staff that allow them to develop pedagogical and curriculum design skills.

Staff training mobility supports the professional development of higher education institution teaching and non-teaching staff in the form of training events abroad (excluding conferences).

According to the Erasmus+ Program Key Action 1 – Mobility of Individuals, YSULS academic and administrative staff may seek Erasmus+ funding for a teaching or training period at a partner institution abroad. The teaching or training must be carried out at a Higher Education Institution (HEI)) with which YSULS has signed a bilateral agreement.

EXPECTED OUTCOMES OF THE MOBILITY

The mobility activities are expected to produce the following outcomes:

  • improved competences;
  • broader understanding of practices, policies and systems in education;
  • greater understanding of interconnections between formal and non-formal education, vocational training and the labor market respectively;
  • better quality of their work and activities in favor of students, trainees, apprentices, pupils, adult learners, young people and volunteers;
  • greater understanding and responsiveness to social, linguistic and cultural diversity;
  • increased opportunities for professional and career development;
  • improved foreign language competences;
  • increased motivation and satisfaction in their daily work.
