  • Latest - Fresh insights into Europe’s policy and practice in school education: short news articles, a calendar of events, and a collection of good practices from European projects and classrooms.
  • Viewpoints - Your source of Europe’s expert opinions and ideas in school education provided through articles and interviews. You can also take part in periodic short polls on intriguing topics and make your opinion count!

  • Theme pages - Explore the content through the EU’s nine key priorities in school education:
  • Teacher Academy - Teacher Academy allows teachers to discover a wide range of training opportunities and resources for their classroom. It consists of a central course catalogue with information on in-service onsite courses by independent course providers, School Education Gateway’s own free online courses, and a selection of teaching materials developed by eTwinning teachers, EU institutions and other EU-funded projects.

  • Erasmus+ opportunities - Schools across Europe can benefit from the funding opportunities provided by the European Commission’s Erasmus+ Programme, including support for training courses and teaching assignments for professional development, or participation in project partnerships. Discover the three tools that School Education Gateway provides for schools to prepare their Erasmus+ applications!
  • European Toolkit for Schools - The Toolkit promotes a whole-school approach to improve inclusiveness and prevent early school leaving. It can help school heads, teachers and others identify the needs in prevention of early school leaving and find suitable solutions. The Toolkit collects evidence, documents and good practices of collaborative approaches in and around schools that can be implemented in different school contexts.

The School Education Gateway is funded by Erasmus+, the European programme for Education, Training, Youth and Sport. It is operated for the Directorate General for Education and Culture of the European Commission by European Schoolnet, an international partnership of 31 European Ministries of Education developing learning for schools, teachers and pupils across Europe. The School Education Gateway is linked to eTwinning, the community for schools in Europe.
