2 Days Training Course


A Comprehensive Training Course for Designing and Managing Successful Erasmus+ Projects

Upcoming Courses

This training course is designed to equip participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to develop successful project proposals for the Erasmus+ 2021-2027 programme. The Erasmus+ Programme is the European Union’s flagship programme for education, training, youth and sport. It provides opportunities for individuals and organisations to engage in international activities that promote personal and professional development, foster mutual understanding, and contribute to the modernisation of education, training and youth systems.

Over the course of two days, participants will explore the various features of the programme, including its funding streams and priorities, and learn how to navigate the requirements and criteria for proposal submission.

Through interactive exercises and group activities, participants will gain a thorough understanding of the importance of defining project objectives, conducting needs analysis, and designing a winning project concept and methodology. They will learn how to develop a comprehensive work plan and identify work packages and activities, as well as how to monitor and evaluate project progress and ensure quality assurance.

Participants will also learn about the importance of risk management in project development, building effective partnerships and cooperation arrangements, and ensuring the long-term success and sustainability of their projects. In addition, they will learn about budget and financial planning, including how to create a comprehensive project budget and assess the cost-effectiveness of their projects.

By the end of the course, participants will have acquired the competencies necessary to develop and submit successful project proposals for the Erasmus+ 2021-2027 programme. They will be able to identify the key features and priorities of the programme, develop clear and measurable project objectives, design a comprehensive work plan and budget, and effectively manage project risks, partnerships, and sustainability.

Learning Methodology:
The training will utilize a variety of learning methodologies, including interactive exercises, group activities, case studies, and lectures. Participants will be encouraged to share their experiences and ideas with one another, and will have ample opportunity to ask questions and receive feedback from the trainer. In addition, participants will work together in groups to develop a hypothetical project, allowing them to apply the concepts and skills learned throughout the training in a practical and hands-on manner.
